11. Februar 2013 Audible Modern Vanguard
When Betty Friedan produced The Feminine Mystique in 1963, she could not have realized how the discovery and debate of her contemporaries' general malaise would shake up society. Victims of a false belief system, these women were following strict social convention by loyally conforming to the pretty image of the magazines, and found themselves forced to seek meaning in their lives only through a family and a home. Friedan's controversial book about these women - and every woman - would ultimately set Second Wave feminism in motion and begin the battle for equality. This groundbreaking and life-changing work remains just as powerful, important and true as it was forty-five years ago, and is essential reading both as a historical document and as a study of women living in a man's world.

5.0 von 5 Sternen My favorite book of all time 12. Juni 1998
This book makes you feel like you're right there with Friedan in the 1950's and early 60's, interviewing housewives who feel a vague but desperate emptiness in their lives. This fascinating book shows exactly how post-WWII society subtly discouraged women from ever growing up. While boys received encouragement to grow and seek out their place in the world, girls were taught to get married and live through their husbands and children, never able to forge an identity for themselves and leaving a nagging hollow spot in their psyches. The focus of the book is on how society justified and perpetuated this system (which was still going full-steam-ahead at the time the book was written), often by merely playing upon people's unquestioned assumptions.
I read this book for the first time a year ago, and I was absolutely enthralled. I had never liked history before because it never seemed real, but The Feminine Mystique opened up the past for me like no book or class ever has. The examples she gives from her interviews are very disturbing, especially considering that they were taken less than fifty years ago. She interviews students at Smith College (which was and is women-only) who unabashedly say that they would rather give up their dreams of being microbiologists or physicists because the men don't like "brainy" women. Unengaged students search frantically for men, and those who still enjoy applying themselves to their studies admit it to her in hushed tones, as if confessing a dark secret. There's not a boring page in the entirety of this thought-provoking, fascinating book.
In 1963, Betty Friedan was the first to publicly stand up for the right of women to acheive. Reading her book made me appreciate how incredibly far we've come, and how much we owe it to people like Friedan who fought for our right to become full human beings. She has earned my lifelong respect and gratitude.

5.0 von 5 Sternen We're not done yet 22. April 2000
Von OppEd
As a 19 year old female, I am fascinated by this book. I can now better appreciate the struggles of my grandmothers: both struggled with depression until they finally left the house and got a job. One was an R.N., and the other an interior decorator. This book reminds of the modern-day yuppie housewife who drives her SUV and lives vicariously through her children while Oprah tells her that she has the most important "job" and will avoid becoming depressed if she remembers her spirit each day. I believe that a woman CAN have both a family and a career. After all, men do. My mother has stayed home and worked, and as a kid, I prefer for her to work. She's happier, she's productive, and far less cranky. Freidan's book has shown me that I have every right to fulfll my potential as I start college, and show to younger girls that you don't go to college for your MRS. degree. I refuse to teach future generations of girls that they must choose between career and family. The Feminine Mystique should be read by every woman. Thank God we have come as far as we have, and so much of that credit belongs to Freiden herself.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Classic 12. Juli 2000
Although Friedan's current role in the women's movement is hindered by her inability to "share" with other activists, this book takes the reader back to a day when she was one of the few voices to challenge pervading gender roles (even as she contended with an abusive husband)and treatment of women. While (being born in 1979) I was fortunate to have been raised without narrow gender roles, I can see where such socialization would have set previous generations up. My mother (who was an oddity because both her parents worked) does not conciously identify herself as feminist, but says this book strenghthened her independence.
Most of the facts, statistics and tables are obviously outdated (and therefore unusable to support current discrimination) but there are sections of the book which should be able to carry over into the 21st century. It is worth noting that with the exception of Simmone Beavior's Second Sex, there were few books at the time calling for women to be treated like human beings and equals.
Comparatively devoid of "controversial" issues (like GLBT rights) compared to other books, this gave Friedan the leeway needed to get her admittedly radical writting out to a larger audience. Friedan's status as a suburban middle class wife (despite her radical past with labor unionizing)gave her the protective covering necessary to raise this very important issue.
Even as I personally favor Gloria Steinem (who also understood that women's rights were interconnected with that of other oppressed groups) I found a lot to admire in this book. Friedan was clearly ahead of herself on this one, and problaly was unpreppared for the wave of positive (and some newgative) responses that followed the orginal publication of this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An historical work that is eerily current 14. Mai 2000
I read this book as research for a script I am writing that is set in 1959. I wanted to get a better handle on my female characters, but I found myself on an unexpected journey of self-discovery. I was born in 1963 -- the year this book was published. On these pages I found my mother, my stepmother, my grandmothers and my aunts, but I also saw myself and my friends. Beyond general feminist theory, Ms. Friedan also touches on the issue of dehumanization of American youth, which we can see today in the mass murders being committed by today's youth. THIS BOOK SHOULD BE MANDATORY READING IN ALL AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOLS! It is an important work of social history which should not be forgotten.
