Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks Takes on a Modern Office

“If we are going to run our businesses like it’s the 1960’s, I am going to act like it”

Christina Hendricks, one of the very talented stars of AMC’s Mad Men is bringing attention (with her own Joan Harris spin of course) to staggering statistics regarding women in the U.S. workforce. She recently stared in the Funny or Die short Modern Office which follows her character’s Joan’s struggles to navigate the technology and culture of a current-day office space. Although a humorous video, Joan’s concluding lines are anything but.

Big compliments to Christina and Funny or Die for nailing a very important topic in their contemporary PSA.
