This Artist Swapped Women out for Men in Old Ads for a Powerful Reason

By Mustafa Gatollari

One of the craziest things I noticed watching Mad Men for the first time was the sheer amount of sexism in every episode. It was a major theme of the show and one of the reasons why the AMC series was such a hit is how it handled such complex social commentary.

It's also whacky because none of the dialogue or prevailing thoughts that male characters had in the show about women, at the time, were out of the realm of reality.

All it takes is to look at some of the old school advertisements from back in the day to see how true that is.
