Betty Friedan – The Feminine Mystique

First published in 1963, The Feminine Mystique ignited a revolution that profoundly changed our culture, our consciousness, and our lives. Today it newly penetrates to the heart of issues determining our lives – and sounds a call to arms against the very real dangers of a new feminine mystique. The underlying issues raised by Betty Friedan strike at the core of the problems women still face at home and in the marketplace. As women continue to struggle for equality, to keep their hard-won gains, to find fulfillment in their careers, marriages, and families, The Feminine Mystique remains the seminal consciousness-raising work of our times.

Smooth, interesting and eyeopening. It definitely got me reflecting, it will take a few weeks to finish digesting it. Performance is good, calm and factual and doesn’t get in the way of the narrative at all. I recommend this audiobook.
