Many people know Elisabeth Moss as Peggy Olson on AMC’s hit series, Mad Men. Moss’s character Peggy starts out in Mad Men as the secretary to the show’s main character, Don Draper. In her first episode, many of the characters scrutinize Peggy for her homely look, in comparison to the other women in the office. Many comments are made about how she should alter her appearance to fit in more at the office.

Although Moss’s character is frumpy and innocent, she became a proponent of feminism, as she constantly questioned the double standards between men and women on the show, which takes place in the 1960s.
