The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan

The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan


“Each suburban wife struggles with it alone. As she made the beds, shopped for groceries, matched slipcover material, ate peanut butter sandwiches with her children, chauffeured Cub Scouts and Brownies, lay beside her husband at night- she was afraid to ask even of herself the silent question-- 'Is this all?” 
― Betty Friedan, The Feminine Mystique

Praise on the inside the cover:
"Betty Friedan has, in my opinion, gone straight to the heart of the problem of the American woman." - Pearl S. Buck

"A serious and important book. Its implications are terrifying... a 'must' for al who are concerned with marraige and family life, or who care about the future of our society." - Millicent C. McIntosh

"A daring indictment of the... pressures which have caused a harmful discrepancy between what woman really are and what they are told they should be ... Mrs. Friedan charts a course for women ... Her suggestions are not only sensible but mandatory." - Marya Mannes, New York Herald Tribune

We acknowledge its importance but also respect and acknowledge its counter noted in this article from The Atlantic.
