    Although the central heartbeat of Mad Men is the stony, macho ad-man Don Draper, there’s no denying the television show has its fair share of fantastic female leads, from the shy secretary turned rising badass copywriter Peggy Olson, to Draper's confident but troubled ex-wife Betty Francis. The stories that have unfolded over the past seven seasons are as much about fluctuating '60s feminism and women's issues as they are tales of the advertising industry. And, throughout the series, the show has been host to a wide range of female characters who, although not main players, prove the writers' ability to create interesting women even if they're on the show for just a brief time. Here, we rundown all of our favorite, unsung female characters of Mad Men (and trust us, not all of them have slept with Don).
