Gender roles of Mad Men

Gender roles: Analyze the gender roles in Mad Men and how men and women acted during the ’60s. Why were women treated the way they were? Why was it acceptable for men do that? More than that, analyze the scene we watched in class where Peter and Peggy meet for the first time and he calls her “amish.”

Women were submissive and men were dominant in the society. Men treated women like the subjects and could disrespect women any time in any circumstances, in a bar or the office. in the working environment, women had to please men to maintain the positions and used sex to seduce men to get promoted and etc.
