The Belfast Telegraph published an article on 14 July 2013 reporting that actress Elizabeth Moss "says equality in the workplace is still ‘far from perfect’".

The article goes on to say that "The actress is best known for playing Peggy Olsen in the TV period drama Mad Men. During seasons of the show Peggy has progressed up the career ladder but constantly being met by obstacles. She believes that women still have an uphill battle when it comes to quality."

It is reported that she told British magazine Grazia: "I’ve been saying for years in interviews for Mad Men that sexism in the workplace isn’t that different now to how it was in the 60s. Sure women may have more high-powered jobs may make more money and you can’t sexually harassed a woman in the workplace without getting sued but I think it is more often and come out in other ways. Well with the Internet I think there are plenty more ways to be sexist now but in private whether one needs to know about it."
