Feminist Music Geek Presents … JOANIE

Joan and Peggy GIF

This playlist is inspired by and dedicated to the inimitable Joan Harris, Mad Men‘s most valuable player. The introduction–which explains Harris’ journey as a character–contains spoilers. If you’d like to hear me talk about Joan’s feminist evolution, yay! If not, skip ahead to 7:43 for the tunes.
