Mary Wells Lawrence: Queen of Advertising

Why — decades after she founded Wells Rich Greene — aren't more women running major ad agencies? "This will probably get me in hot water, but maybe women are too smart," she says, without blinking. "Maybe women have quietly decided to let the men do all that. Women want more meaningful lives that are richer, with more feeling, more variety and more possibilities." This from the woman who ran one of Madison Avenue's hottest ad agencies for 23 years.

I need to get her book, A Big Life (in advertising). She is featured in an up coming film ART & COPY I hope we can have this film come to MPLS.
