  •  Rec'd for a thoughtful tome. (7+ / 0-)

    But the show is about the way it was back in the day.  So all those open sores are there for us to endure, and shake our heads at.

    The likely audience of Mad Men is made of folks who've moved on from women objectification,  spouse abuse, mysogynism, and sexism.

    Really glad that DK is examining the show!  We all need a break from the current political clime.

    •  My view is from the late 1970's (3+ / 0-)

      About 10 years later when more women were going into jobs like account manager.  So, it reflects that time period, when women had to be so careful not to screw up because everyone expected you to do things the way Joanie did.  We were trying to break that mold.  No cleavage, no flirting, no screwing around at the office.

      Fun times, haha!  My boss had to take my customers to the bordello, instead of me.
