Mad Men and Careers
If you are interested in experiencing what gender differences in the work places were like in the 50's and 60's, give the new AMC show Mad Men a shot. This is the only show that's fully grabbed my attention and to which I'm giving a 9/10. Mad Men is now on its second season.
The show portrays rather dexterously familial tension, intrigue, professional and personal inadequacies, gender differences, body perceptions, clothing as text, homosociality and much more. Plus, the main character, Mr. Draper, is played by the uber-talented Jon Hamm. Watch it. It won't disappoint.
