Fox News ‘Girls Gone Mild’ Segment Reminds Women: ‘Don’t Talk Too Much,’ Men Don’t Like That
A Fox & Friends segment on Monday reminded women that they shouldn’t talk too much, and gave some other “helpful advice” for women who want to be “successful.”
The segment featured Executive Presence author Sylvia Ann Hewlett who advises women to wear “well-cut jeans with a colorful top” and “not raise their voices.”
Co-host Anna Kooiman said, “Women shouldn’t be focused so much on what we look like, and what we’re wearing, but what our mind can do.”
Co-host Brian Kilmeade noted, “Also a little thing that you think is important is your presentation and your voice. Keep it low, don’t speak loud.”
“For women,” host Steve Doocy chimed in.
Hewlett said that women sometimes “fill the air with words… but oftentimes that undermines you, just rambling.”
“Don’t talk too much,” Doocy recommended.
“Exactly, know what you’re putting out there.” Hewlett said. “Interestingly, men commit a lot of these mistakes, not just women. And there are some particular hurdles for people of color.”
Unfortunately, they did not discuss those hurdles for people of color, that likely would have resulted in several more fun tips.
Fox News has an interesting way of discussing women’s issues.
Last week, Fox News reporter Jesse Watters discussed single women’s voting preferences, calling single women “Beyonce voters” who depend on government checks because they can’t “depend on their husbands.”
“[Hillary] needs the single ladies vote — I call them the Beyonce voters, the ‘Single Ladies’ — Obama won the single ladies by 76 percent last time. And they made up about a quarter of the electorate,” Watters says. “They depend on government because they’re not depending on their husbands.”
