I am anxiously awaiting the release of Season 2 on DVD. We watched the first season on DVD over Christmas, and with Season 3 starting in August, I need to be all caught up!
Now, explain to me why we can't dress like this anymore?
Have you ever feel like this? Haha! We've all been there! After reading same other blogs and listening to various people's opinions on the topic, I've come to the conclusion that people see Mad Men as sexist, or rather the "Mad Men era" as sexist. That may be true, but why oh why did the women's lib movement have to also involve women no longer dressing like women(or to other extreme way too provocatively)? I am a very traditional woman. I love keeping a home and I am so happy to be getting married and to start the next chapter of my life as B's wife! I have always felt that my femininity is my power! Why should I try to act like a man? To try to attract one? I really don't think many men want a woman who strives to be more masculine (power hungry, carefree sexual attitude, so ambitious that she'd back stab and claw her way to the top?)! Maybe I am naive, but I find women like that disgusting. There is nothing wrong with being a powerful career woman, NOTHING wrong with it, but I think women need to go about it differently. We will never be the same as men because we aren't men! I sometimes feel like the women's lib movement destroyed our image of ourselves. That is another whole post! So why not play up our femininity and look like proper women? Maybe even look a bit powerful? I'm sure many people will disagree with me on this, and I certainly didn't plan to go off on that tangent! Its just a thought.
