Ask Amanda Blair -- the only regular female radio presenter on metropolitan commercial AM radio in Australia -- if she's encountered sexism in the workplace and her war stories seem to never end.

"I've had program directors ask me if I've got my period if I've complained about something," she told Crikey. "I've had program directors say to me 'why can't you just be like all the other girls who make cups of tea and are nice to me?'. I've had 'look, you probably shouldn't talk about politics because you're a woman'. I've had 'I probably shouldn't ask this, but are you going to get pregnant again? Because if you are then it might determine how long I'm going to sign you for on your contract'."
