First published in 1963, The Feminine??Mystique ignited a revolution that??profoundly changed our culture, our conciousness, and our??lives. Today it newly penetrates to the heart of??isuues determining our lives -- and sounds a call to??arms against the very real dangers of a newe??feminine mystique in the economic and political??turbulence of the 1990s. Three decades later,??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, marriage and??family, The Feminine Mystique??remains the seminal conciousness-raising work of??our times.
