High achieving women reveal suffocating stereotypes in FW’s latest podcast


In FW’s latest podcast Too Much, eight high achieving women share the stereotypes they’ve faced at work.

Whether they were labelled ‘too outspoken,’ ‘too emotional,’ ‘too gentle’ or ‘too young,’ these female leaders were subject to discrimination or prejudice that shaped their careers and their sense of self.

Too Much host and FW founder Helen McCabe says “At a time when Australian businesses are grappling with gender pay gaps being made public and a lack of representation in senior roles, hearing stories that explain why women choose to leave male-dominated industries is crucial.”

“Every woman has been labelled ‘too something’ at work. The Too Much podcast is a chance for them to share their stories – often for the first time – as well as provide practical advice to other women about how to overcome stereotypes and find success in spite of them.”

The series begins with acclaimed international human rights lawyer Jennifer Robinson. Other upcoming guests include former Australian of the Year Grace Tame, Hollywood producer Jodi Matterson and former Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop.

Episodes drop weekly from 5am AEDT today (Tuesday March 19).
