Earlier this week, a Fox & Friends segment called ‘Girls Gone Mild’ warned women who wanted to succeed in the workplace “not to raise their voices” or speak too much.

Fox News host Steve Doocy introduced the book “Executive Presence” by Sylvia Ann Hewlett by mentioning that women should wear “well-cut jeans with a colorful top,” while a graphic advised women “not to raise their voices.”

Doocy’s co-host, Anna Kooiman, argued that “women shouldn’t be so focused on what we look like, and what we’re wearing, but what our mind can do.”

Another co-host, Brian Kilmeade, added:

“Also a little thing that you think is important is your presentation and your voice. Keep it low, don’t speak loud.” [source]

Following that statement, Doocy quickly emphasized:

“For women.” [source]

Hewlett justifies the advice in her book by making an example of women from the South who were taught to “fill the air with words” because “oftentimes that undermines you, just rambling.”

Doocy recommended:

“Don’t talk too much.” [source]

Hewlett said:

“Exactly. Interestingly, men commit a lot of these mistakes, not just women. And there are some particular hurdles for people of color.” [source]

Fox News has a strange way of discussing women’s issues. You can watch the full segment, which aired on Monday July 7th, below:
