    Ladies, the next time you decide you don t want to cook dinner that night, that you d rather read a book instead I want you to give a little fist bump to the heavens in honor of Betty Friedan It s because of her that you even have that opportunity to make that choice.Let s clear something up right now The Feminine Mystique is not a text on how to become a man hating, radical, hairy armpi

    i don t think i ve ever seen the word beatnikery in print before. i think the reason to read this book is to gain an understanding of feminism in the mid century Zietgiest It gave me some things to think about, despite being hopelessly outdated and terribly repetitive i was particularly intrigued by the idea that manufacturers would want to keep women bored and at home in order to sell th

    What struck me the most when I read this as a teenager and this was the first of its genre I read was how, in excruciatingly familiar detail, it described my mother God rest her soul, I didn t appreciate it at the time and it didn t make me any less of a brat Her life had been a life typical of many women that entered the workforce during WWII Instead of marrying when the war ended, she st

    Reading this book is bittersweet for me Every sentence, every paragraph, every chapter, I m cheering Friedan on At first, I kept thinking, If only I d read this when I was a teenager in the early 1970s, it would have saved me a lot of grief the years I spent looking for men to save me, to give me an identity If I d read it back then, maybe I would have recognized the wretched inequalities i

    I was born in 1959 and when this came out originally in 1963, I was 4 years old I went to school in Atlanta in the 1960 s and 1970 s When I was in elementary school grades 1 7 from fall of 1965 to June of 1972, I was struck by the differences between other women and my mother For example, every single one of the other moms of the kids in my classes from 1st to 7th grade were housewives While

    I am very grateful for all the things Betty Friedan did so that I was raised in a less sexist world That being said, this book was pretty bad for two main reasons First, Friedan writes emotionally rather than rationally She does not appeal to my rational brain but rather attempts to manipulate me emotionally by painting a very dramatic portrait that pins Every Problem Ever on women staying ho

    The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan is an iconic book that relentlessly changed the way the American woman saw herself, until its first publication in 1963 Feministic in a good way, without the morbid extravaganza other reads of that type hold, it s relevant even now and if you don t choose to believe so, at least you can appreciate it as a historical document In my opinion the above statem

    Have you ever read one of Richard Yates s novels such as Revolutionary Road and said Gaaaawwwwwd, he s a great writer, but why d he have to make it so depressing The Feminine Mystique will show you that he was accurately portraying the despair and feeling of entrapment many married women were experiencing in post WWII America 4.5 stars Hard to rate because it s often needlessly wordy and overlo

    I read excerpts from The Feminine Mystique at university, and have wanted to read entire book for a few years now While this book is still important and highlights the ways in which sociology, higher ed, economy hell, even architecture betrayed women, for every positive post it note I found something problematic I would love to see addressed in a footnote or the foreword, which will probably nev

    Such a revolutionary work for its age I feel thankful that Betty Friedan had the guts to publish this feminist manifesto and give voice to the dissatisfaction of so many women around her Keep in mind The Feminine Mystique s publication date now, it may seem obvious that women are so muchthan placid housewives and subservient sex objects, but back in early twentieth century America, they still fac
