Title:Mad Women - The Other Side of Life on Madison Avenue in the 1960s and Beyond
What was it like to be an advertising women on New York's Madison Avenue in the heady days of the 1960s and 1970s? Fans of the hit series MAD MEN are dying to know how accurate it is: Was there really that much sex in the office? Were there really three-martini lunches? Were women really second-class citizens? Award-winning advertising executive Jane Maas, who succeeded in the male jungle depicted in MAD MEN, says the answer to these three question is unequivocally yes. Wickedly funny and full of juicy inside information, MAD WOMEN also tackles the tougher issues of the era such as unequal pay and rampant sexism. Maas also reminds us that the challenge she faced of being a supportive wife, caring mother and successful profession, all at the same time, still remains.
