I tend to be skeptical of strands of feminism that claim that if ladies were just in power wars would end, we’d renew Gaia, and all that jazz. That said, if Matthew Weiner promised me that Mad Men* would end up with Joan, Betty, and Peggy joining the same consciousness-raising group, figuring out that their relationships with the men of Sterling Cooper were shaped by broader assumptions about gender and power, and founded a collective where they raised their own food, raised kids their kids together, and supported themselves with their hit book, Our Ad Men, Ourselves, I might actually be tempted to watch it:
*I know, I know. I should give Mad Men another shot. I promise I will catch up before the next season starts.
