In honor of the Mad Men premier Sunday, The NY Daily News dug up some sexist advertisements from the mid-century era of the show. This is just the type of ad that Don Draper would have smirkingly approved. It’s amazing and laughable to look back at how women were held in such low regard in those days. Men ruled then, but soon feminism reared its beautiful head and times are still evolving. Hopefully, Beyonce, who seems to have forgotten the continued need for female equality, will take a close look at this. (Our favorite ad is by Van Heusen, above.)
