LONG RESPONSE One Option – 40 Points (~3 pages) On Sakai in the ‘Exam’ folder, you will find a link to an episode of the television show Mad Men (2007-2013), which is set at a New York advertising agency in the 1960s. Like many episodes of this series, gender – how it is part of a system of power, how people perform it, etc. – is a key theme. For this essay, analyze this episode from each of the three feminist perspectives we talked about in lecture: Liberal Feminism, Radical Feminism, and Critical Feminism. What would someone operating from each of these perspectives say about this workplace? What kinds of questions would they ask? What would their critiques be? Some key themes you should address from each perspective include: its view of organizations, its conception of gender, the view of communication, and the goal of its understanding of feminism. You should also discuss the role of performativity and gender accountability as it is depicted in this workplace.
