Okay Kids, One last look into my crazy brain as I imagine Peggy in 1975.
Well, Peggy (to paraphrase Greg Brady), is a really ‘groovy chick’ of the Seventies. She’s a real ‘happening’ kind of woman, and wicked cool at that. Inspired by Gloria Steinem, Peggy joins the National Organization for Women and helps Ms. magazine become a major client of the new COP Advertising Agency *. Having long eschewed dresses and pantyhose around the office, she is lovingly known by the newbies as ‘Peggy Pantsuit’ . Indeed, she has a pantsuit for every occasion, and even convinced her friend Joyce to wear one. She calls them her ‘power pants’, and was only mistaken for a Burger King employee once. Peggy has landed huge accounts with L’Eggs knee-hi stockings, pet rocks, and something called Jheri-Curl. Things are looking great for COP!
Peggy maintains a happy live-in arrangement with Abe in their spacious West End Apartment. They have three cats and a golden retriever.
* Campbell, Olsen, Price. Cooper passed away in 1974 and Sterling now works for Joan Holloway at partner company Holloway Media and Copy, Don has retired and spends his days beach-combing while Megan writes copy for COP.
p.s. on a personal note, I”m having foot surgery tomorrow (11/10) so I’ll be away for a couple of weeks, I’ll try to submit a piece or two in that time-Therese 🙂
