Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Scholar, journalist, activist, and noted author, Betty Friedan led a public campaign for equality in American society that stretched from 1950's suburbia to the close of the 20th century. Friedan's personal experiences motivated her to rally against anti-Semitism at Smith College, reveal wage discrimination as a reporter for labor unions, define domestic dissatisfaction in "The Feminine Mystique," and organize women for equality with the founding of the National Organization for Women. That public persona also affected her private life in marriage, motherhood, and eventual divorce. This newest addition to Longman's "Library of American Biography Series" follows Friedan through nearly 50 years of championing equality, mapping the successes and shortfalls of her agenda. The titles in the "Library of American Biography Series" make ideal supplements for American History Survey courses or other courses in American history where figures in history are explored. Paperback, brief, and inexpensive, each interpretative biography in this series focuses on a figure whose actions and ideas significantly influenced the course of American history and national life. At the same time, each biography relates the life of its subject to the broader themes and developments of the times.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Susan Oliver's portrait of Betty Friedan is well-written, judiciously analyzed, and impressively researched. Friedan's efforts through literary works and social activism to establish first-class status for women are well explained and more than adequately covered. Thanks to Oliver's efforts, Friedan is less of an enigma.
