The Feminine Mystique (50th Anniversary Edition)
If youve never read it, read it now.Arianna Huffington, O, The Oprah MagazineLandmark, groundbreaking, classicthese adjectives barely do justice to the pioneering vision and lasting impact of The Feminine Mystique. Published in 1963, it gave a pitch-perfect description of the problem that has no name: the insidious beliefs and institutions that undermined womens confidence in their intellectual capabilities and kept them in the home. Writing in a time when the average woman first married in her teens and 60 percent of women students dropped out of college to marry, Betty Friedan captured the frustrations and thwarted ambitions of a generation and showed women how they could reclaim their lives. Part social chronicle, part manifesto, The Feminine Mystique is filled with fascinating anecdotes and interviews as well as insights that continue to inspire. This 50thanniversary edition features an afterword by best-selling author Anna Quindlen as well as a new introduction by Gail Collins.
"If you want to understand the passion that helped fire up the modern women's movement, there may be no better place to start than with The Feminine Mystique." - NPR "Lively, astute, and ferocious. . . . The Feminine Mystique should be required reading for anyone who cares about women." - Chronicle of Higher Education "Brilliant. . . . [Friedan] succeeded where no other feminist writer had. She touched the lives of ordinary readers." - The New Yorker
