Don’t watch it if you don’t want to but this take lazy and dead wrong. This show was about the women, not the men. If you are talking to men who think Don Draper is some kind of hero, that’s on you for hanging out with assholes.  Way to let someone else do the critical thinking for you.

Also, what’s with the picture of the guy at the top of the article. He’s identified as the CEO in the caption but then not mentioned in the article itself.

Yup. I’m just finishing In the Garden of the Beast by Eric Larson. It’s about the US ambassador to Germany in the mid 30's (and his daughter).
