First published in 1963, The Feminine  Mystique ignited a revolution that  profoundly changed our culture, our conciousness, and our  lives. Today it newly penetrates to the heart of  isuues determining our lives -- and sounds a call to  arms against the very real dangers of a newe  feminine mystique in the economic and political  turbulence of the 1990s.

Three decades later,  the underlying issues raised by Betty Friedan strike  at the core of the problems women still face at  home and in the marketplace. As women continue to  struggle for equality, to keep their hard-won gains,  to find fulfillment in their careers, marriage and  family, The Feminine Mystique  remains the seminal conciousness-raising work of  our times.

About the Author:

Betty Friedan (1921 - 2006) was an American writer, activist and feminist, widely credited with starting the "Second Wave" of the Women's Movement in the United States with her 1963 book The Feminine Mystique. She was the primary founder of the National Organization for Women in 1966 which aimed to bring women "into the mainstream of American society now" in "fully equal partnership with men".

Review:

“Lively, astute, and ferocious. . . . The Feminine Mystique should be required reading for anyone who cares about women.”
- Rachel Shteir, Chronicle of Higher Education

“Brilliant. . . . [Friedan] succeeded where no other feminist writer had. She touched the lives of ordinary readers.”
- Louis Menand, The New Yorker

“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.”
- Lynn Neary, NPR
