Multi-talented musician Marcia Richards might be living the dream now, touring the U.S. with her London-based band The Skints, but not long ago this lifestyle was nearly impossible for her to imagine.

Despite what you may have seen on AMC, the heyday of Madison Avenue advertising had its fair share of feisty females. And these dames made a lot more than just coffee.“The Chef does everything but cook—that’s what wives are for!” proclaimed Kenwood’s 1961 advertisement for a new kitchen mixer called The Chef.
