Abstract:

When Betty Friedan's Feminine Mystique was published in 1963, the modern women's movement was born, her blunt and passionate words breaking through the veils of conventional thought that had shrouded women's inequality. Rarely has one woman, through writings, speeches, and personal leadership, been the catalyst for so much sweeping social change in America. As women of all ages have written her ever since: "It changed my life!" This book intertwines Friedan's most famous speeches and articles, never before collected, with personal memories; but even more, as recent events have forced her to reevaluate her own experience, it contains dramatic new writing that illuminates the history she herself helped make, giving new insights and raising new questions.--From publisher description.
