  1. Not a fun time to be a woman during the Mad Men era, but boy oh boy what changes were made.
    Thank goodness women don’t have to go through all of that stuff now. It was really awful. Now if men disrespect me it’s out there, but back then it was part of the culture to treat women disrespectfully and it was done in every way. Again, I am so glad no women or men have to experience all of the bad stuff that went on. I can’t even watch Mad Men because it is so real.

      Why don’t you ask an older gentleman who lived during that era what he thinks of how young men treat women today.

      Prepare to be surprised.

      And you might want to not take history lessons from tv shows.

  2. Actually, the reason that Jan Brady said “Marcia,” (not Marsha) was that was her older sister’s NAME. Jan was the stereotypical neglected middle daughter and was getting frustrated at Marcia getting all the glory. So there is no Brady Bunch connection, just a Stan Freberg one in that particular episode.
