Jane Sterling is Roger Sterling's wife. A college graduate hired as Don Draper's secretary, she quickly catches the eye of Roger, who smoothes things over when office manager Joan Holloway fires Jane for flouting company protocol. Rehired, she begins an affair with Roger that culminates in marriage.
Roger hosts a country club party to help Jane gain favor with his crowd. After getting wildly drunk, she inadvertently expresses her frustration at not being accepted. "You don't like me," she tells Don. "I'm a nice person." She reiterates the point to Roger after her attempts to befriend his daughter Margaret fall flat. "I don't know what kind of world you live in," she tells him, “but I am the good person here."
