'Mad Men' Star Elisabeth Moss Talks Feminism And Bra-Burning

04/06/2013 10:12 am ET

Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss) will return for a sixth season of "Mad Men" on Sunday night. And while she's left Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce behind, Moss doubts that Peggy -- who is famous for her progressive ideals -- will become a diehard feminist as the show ventures into the '70s.

"She's not going to be a hippie, she's not gonna start burning bras," Moss told Vulture. "She's a different kind of feminist. She's the one who works really hard, and concentrates on her job, and wants to move up in the world of her business. And her progressiveness and her brand of feminism -- it comes in probably a bit of a more realistic way, you know?"

As Peggy moves into unknown professional territory in the coming season, Moss thinks the issue of sexism will take a back seat in Peggy's life.

"I think the sexism part of it is becoming probably less of an issue, although at the same time, I just remembered something that totally counteracts that. [Laughs.] It becomes less of an issue personally for her, as for how bothered she is with it," Moss told The Huffington Post. "I think when any sexism issues come up now, she's just like, 'Yeah, whatever.'"

"Mad Men" Season 6 premieres on Sun., April 7 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
