If you’re a woman and you do not know who Betty Friedan is, you’re doing yourself a disservice. Thanks to her tireless efforts women have many of the equal rights and responsibilities outside the home. What caught my eye about Betty today is that not only was she born today in 1921, she also died today in 2006.
Happy Birth/Death day, Betty.
Instead of fulfilling the promise of infinite orgasmic bliss, sex in the America of the feminine mystique is becoming a strangely joyless national compulsion, if not a contemptuous mockery. – Betty Friedan
