January Jones: #BitchesBeBossesNow

Best #ThrowbackThursday hashtag ever?

Ah, #ThrowbackThursday. It’s a time to reminisce, feel nostalgic and laugh at dodgy old photos.

But January Jones used yesterday’s #ThrowbackThursday session to post an old modelling shoot (from 1996) and create one of the best hashtags we’ve heard in a while.

Along with a photo of her playing a secretary being shouted at by a male boss and the strapline: ‘Bosses Can Be Hazardous To Your Career,’ the Mad Men actress wrote: ‘#tbt to 1996 when I was modeling for a magazine story talking about women’s “issues”. 1996 resembled 1956 more than I realized. #bitchesbebossesnow.’

It’s interesting to see that less than twenty years ago it was still presumed that the man would be the boss and woman subordinate, don’t you think?

Nice work, Jones. #BitchesBeBossesNow, indeed.
