Due to the exciting inclement weather of New England, this forum has been canceled and will be rescheduled.
On the 50th anniversary of the publication of Betty Friedan’s groundbreaking book, New York Times columnist Gail Collins, former US District Judge Nancy Gertner, and former Governor of Vermont Madeleine Kunin discuss the strides made by the feminist movement and the challenges ahead. -JFK Library
Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Betty Friedan's revolutionary work The Feminine Mystique at the JFK Library Tuesday March 19th.
“The problem that has no name” addressed directly and without apology in The Feminine Mystique changed the way women looked at themselves and their predetermined place within society. Betty Friedan delineated the frustrations that plagued women and gave them a voice and path to break with a tradition they had no hand in crafting. The topic of feminism remains a misunderstood and fractious subject even today.
ALL EVENTS AT THE JFK LIBRARY ARE FREE OF CHARGE.
DO NOT LIVE IN THE BOSTON AREA? YOU CAN STILL ATTEND THIS EVENT! SIMPLY GO TO THE JFK EVENTS PAGE FOR THE AUDIOCAST.
