Mad Women: Gender Wars in Mad Men

As the final season of Mad Men approaches, take a look at the struggles between the genders in the show. Although sexism is rampant in the show about the ad business in the 1960’s, the women of the show frequently use it to get ahead and still manage to leave the men stupefied. An article could address the effects of this sexism on women and ways they are forced to cope with it.

  • I think it would also be interesting to look at a parallel to today. How is sexism still present in the workplace today and how women deal with it today versus the 1960s. You could even compare a modern show with a similar setting. – Liz Watkins 8 years ago
