Barbara Feigin overcame stereotypes and sexism to rise to the top of the Mad Men-era advertising world

When Feigin was just 2-years old, she fled Nazi Germany with her mother and Jewish father. They traveled across Russia by train and later departed Tokyo on a Japanese ship, eventually arriving on the shores of Seattle. They settled in Chehalis more than a month after leaving Berlin.
