AMC’s hit series Mad Men has been called both “bad for women” and “the most feminist show on television". This dispute over the feminist value of Mad Men amplifies when you look particularly at the character of Betty Draper (now Betty Francis).
Scholars across the humanities consider Mad Men from a fascinating array of perspectives, including fashion, history, civil rights, feminism, consumerism, and art, as well as through theoretical frames such as critical race theory, gender, queer theory, and psychoanalysis.
