Women Shine in ‘Mad Men’ Season

Critics applaud shift in sixth installment of series.

Pete Campbell, you may have to take this one with scotch. As the sixth season of acclaimed drama Mad Men begins Sunday night, critics are applauding what they see as a shift in focus in the final season from Don Draper and Roger Sterling to the women of the show. A review in The New York Times suggests that, while they’ve secretly been leading the plot all along, the women really take the lead in the end. “More than the men, [the women] are the ones who defy expectations and break ground ... [and] keep us wanting just a little bit more.”
