Flashback: Women Want One Thing — A Better Copy Machine

This vintage ad reminds us of something any viewer of Mad Men already knows: using a copy machine used to be a woman's job, and only a woman's job. If I were these women, I might demand something else besides long, short, and dimensional copies. How about less polyester . . . or men who know that they, too, have the ability to make copies?

Hiding - not unlike how she related EVERYTHING to Real Housewives of Trashyville a few months ago. I think that the sugar sites get sponsorship money for mentioning shows in "natural" ways. :oy: I think the ad is kind of funny, looking back at it.

This reminds me of an incident. My boss asked me to help on a project for a client. The client had never met me in person, but we spoke over the phone many times in the course of working on this project. The first time I met the client, he said to me "You're not a secretary? You went to college?" No,silly, I'm not a secretary! I'm the engineer who's been doing everything you're requesting since my boss couldn't do it!I also once had a colleague tell me that "Women can't be good engineers. They belong at home with the children."Sexism is alive and well!

Are you obsessed with Mad Men? You relate whatever you can to it. Not everyone watches that show.
