Pleasing your man!Back then we girls wanted to be just like her. Thanks Betty C for your role in this book Then along came Betty Friedan, no shrinking violet,who wrote a simple handbook - The Feminine Mystique - and shook up the world.

About the Author:

Alice Borodkin's past struggle to be validated for who she was during the rise of feminism sets an example and life lesson for younger women today. Learning to fly and earning her pilot's license opened the door she flew through to become successful in business and marketing, both primarily men's jobs at that time. She went on to serve as a Colorado State Legislator for eight years. In that position she took a firm stand on numerous women's issues.

Review:

"Caught Between the Bettys tells of courageous women - female rebels who wore pearls in the 1940s, 50s and 60s - and the culture and changes introduced by two very different cultural icons: Betty Crocker and Betty Friedan ... the story of how Borodkin became socially and politically aware in an era of homemakers and male power is actually an account of how she 'made her own history.' ...  As such, it's an evocative, highly recommended pick for any woman who wants insights on the process of self-realization and change." Diane Donovan
