Dawn Towner

Played by Regina Hall

Dawn Towner

Dawn is Mo's right hand (wo)man and the only female head trader on Wall Street, not to mention one of the few female traders period at the time. Dawn is highly educated and highly determined to ride the second wave of feminism through this toxic sea of horny man-children, crashing the glass ceiling—and possibly the market and her marriage—in the process.
