You make excellent points about Y&R & AMC. They still do well with women in the workplace.
I am not sure how to grade Hogan on workplace stories.
He did great for Carly & Barbara. He created some great stories around the fashion industry for them. I loved the rivalry that he created between them with Craig in the middle feeding it. And loved Paul trying to get vengeance on him when he tried to get control of BRO.
But it was with Hogan that many of the women got ignored who had been strong businesswomen under other writers. Lucinda was completely ignored under him. Lisa was hardly ever shown as a businesswoman under him. And I think it was under him that The Argus (Lisa's paper) was forgotten. And Kim hardly ever had anything to do at the station. Those were key elements of ATWT before that time. They didn't completely fade from the characters but were never used. Adn poor Margo ATWT's only female cop always played second fiddle to the male cops who did the majority of the investigations on crime in Oakdale.
So part of it could be him with Days but I think it is a new general direction for Days taht I dont care for much.
