Dawn knows that Joan is someone that commands respect and probably is actually one of the good people at SCDP, and knows that if you stay on her good side that she’ll be willing to teach her how to also command respect at SCDP.
Joan is seems wary of Dawn. It isn’t a racial reason why she’s wary, but Joan sees potential in Dawn and wants to see if it amounts to something…Possibly a Peggy or a younger Joan. If she didn’t think much of Dawn, she would have fired her (or treated her with outright disain like that blonde one from last season). Joan wants to test her, but doesn’t want to let on that she thinks Dawn is something special out of the new crop of secretaries.
Partner Joan may come off as a bitch and too harsh, but she holds everyone (especially the women) to at least as high a standard as she does herself. She believes that just because you work as a secretary doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take it seriously.
Mad woMEN, Playboy 1962
Ida Blankenship is the dirtiest one of them all.
“In his tape recordings for his autobiography, Roger reveals that he’d had a tryst with Miss Blankenship early in his career, causing a rift between him and Cooper. Roger implies that she was sexually adventurous and aggressive, referring to her as the “Queen of Perversions”.”

The White House needs some women.
Correction, the White House needs some MAD women.
I want to have dreams in which I am at this table with them.
- If I walk out that door, that’s it.
- That’s it.
hahahaha no emmys for this season hahahaah hahah hahah hah ha i’m actually not laughing
It is a fucking crime that she didn’t win for this and that this entire season didn’t win.
Joan: My mother raised me to be admired. But no flowers from you.
Don: You scared the shit out of me.
Aaaahhh….All the feelings from season 5 are coming back to me.
Don/Joan friendship FOREVER.
Here’s to hoping that Christina and Jon get Emmy Awards tonight!
(12/100) » Mad Men
I want to be a part of this gathering.
One of the many reasons why Christina Hendricks absolutely NEEDS to win an Emmy for Season 5.
And there it is: the outfit that caused us to gasp out loud. That is, of course, the fur that Roger gave Joan back in 1954; the one that caused her to coo “When I wear it I’ll think of everything that happened the night I got it.” Well, fuck you, Roger Sterling. That’s EXACTLY what this outfit is saying. “You ruined what we had by letting me do this, so I’m ruining what you gave me.” [X]
Fucking hell, Mad Men…Well played.
Don/Joan friendship forever.
Just needed to bring this one back around.
Never not reblog, because it needs to be forever.
