Landmark, groundbreaking, classic--these adjectives barely describe the earthshaking and long-lasting effects of Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique. This is the book that defined "the problem that has no name," that launched the Second Wave of the feminist movement, and has been awakening women and men with its insights into social relations, which still remain fresh, ever since. A national bestseller, with over 1 million copies sold.

The Feminine Mystique is still relevant and insightful in 2011. I highly recommend it.

I look at current advertisement differently now. However in the ad world I don't think a whole lot has changed. The Mr. Clean commercials still show a woman standing proudly over her clean kitchen floor.

I had never read this and probably won't finish it because it is dated and focuses on women getting a job. Our issues have changed since the '60's. Now we are getting the jobs, but not always equal pay or opportunity. Good old boys still alive and well at least in the midwest.
