On July 19, 2007 we were introduced to Don Draper, a catalyst in the high-intensity world that is New York advertising. We traveled with him as he navigated family life, several high-priority business accounts, and his own psyche. 

But Draper’s presence on the screen was frequently complemented—and even at times overshadowed—by the beautiful, captivating, and refreshing female characters represented by talented actresses. These include the likes of January Jones, Elisabeth Moss, and Christina Hendricks, who piloted the show alongside Hamm.

In honor of the 10 years since the show’s series premiere, let’s acknowledge and admire the madly enchanting women of Mad Men.
