The Other Woman
If you have watched the latest season of Mad Men then you might be interested in this discussion on The Daily Beast about the episode titled The Other Woman. (A three word non-spoilery reminder of the episode would be to say: Joan, Jaguar, partners.)
Show creator Matthew Weiner and star Christina Hendricks offer an oral history of the heartbreaking, Emmy-nominated Joan episode, the first of a two-part conversation.
Hendricks: There were very few options for women at this time at work. As a single mother, how do you rise at work? How do you make more money? How do you support your family? Luckily, we have a lot more options these days. It’s not fair to compare the situation to 2012, but people can’t help it because that’s where we live, and that’s what we do, and that’s who we are. We get emotional, thinking, “I would never do that. I can’t believe it.” Well, you would never do it now.
If you've seen it, what are your thoughts on the episode. I will reply with mine. I'd like to keep the post spoiler free if that's okay!
