Christina Hendricks is campaigning for equality and women rights in the workplace. The Mad Men star, and hollywood beauty joined President Barack Obama for the The White House Summit on Working Families. Obama and Hendricks said Monday that the United States should join the rest of the industrialized world and offer paid leave for mothers and newborns.
While political issues are normal for President Obama, Christina Hendricks is making a splash on the DC political scene. Hendricks plays a single mother on the hit AMC show Mad Men, so advocating women’s right and causes are not foreign to the actress.
Hendricks, who plays Joan Harris on the show, said that “in the 21st Century, the only place for a story like Joan’s should be on TV.”
Christina Hendricks is known for her curves and beauty, but it’s fantastic to see her advocating for political rights for American families. I wonder what is next for Hendricks? She may not be running for President anytime soon, but I look forward to seeing her political platform blossom.
