Teaching women that there

was much more to life and happiness than the meager bill of goods they'd been sold for so long.

R.I.P. Betty Friedan.

As a child of the '60s, I remember seeing this book on my mother's bookshelf, along with Susan Brownmiller and "Our Bodies, Ourselves." I didn't fully understand what I was reading at the time, but over the years, I've certainly been an outspoken advocate of her forceful message to all of us.

What a shame this society is so rapidly undoing all the good that she created.

May your spirit live forever, Betty.
