If you’re gearing to spend some annual leave time binge-watching shows in the air conditioning this summer, here are a few of our favorite working women you might want to get acquainted with:

Working Women on Television

1. Nurse Jackie

Equal parts saint and sinner, Edie Falco’s Nurse Jackie Peyton is the ferocious den mother of a New York City Hospital emergency room who fights to hide and kick her own addiction to prescription drugs.

2. Joan Harris

She’s the ultimate secretary-as-sex-symbol and the holder of all office secrets at Mad Men‘s Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce advertising agency . Christina Hendrick’s Joan Harris is actually the office manager, often required to be both the face and the brains of the operation (not to mention the body).

3. Peggy Olson

Elizabeth Moss’ Peggy Olson is the only female copywriter at at Mad Men‘s Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce advertising agency. She’s the stalwart of the ad team, fighting hard for her place alongside her male counterparts while coming up with catchy slogans.

4. Liz Lemon

Her apartment is a mess, she has a love-hate relationship with carbs, she dresses like Princess Leia to get out of jury duty and she’s the boss-lady of a motley crew of NBC writers and performers on 30 Rock‘s fictional sketch comedy show, TGS. Tina Fey’s Liz Lemon is the least glamorous person we wish we could be.

5. Kris Jenner

The mom of six and head of the Kardashian-Jenner empire is the modern Carol Brady, juggling life in front of the reality television cameras, the international engagements and endorsement deals of the entire family and regularly staged family dinners.
