The Women of Madison Avenue


November 10, 2016 – March 10, 2017
Sponsor(s): Hartman Center

This Hartman Center exhibit focuses on the long and sometimes hidden history of women in advertising, tracing the career opportunities open to women as they progress from clerical staff to copywriting, art and market research and on to the highest positions in ad agencies as creative directors and CEOs. The exhibit also situates women’s achievements and continuing struggles for advancement and equality in the broader efforts to improve diversity and opportunity in the advertising workforce. 


This exhibition was sponsored in part by the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation.
