The 50th Anniversary of the Feminine Mystique

When Betty Friedan identified “the problem that has no name” – the widespread [...]unhappiness that afflicted well-educated homemakers who seemed to have it all in the 1950s and 1960s -- she touched a nerve of recognition among women across America, and touched off a firestorm of debate that was crucial in giving rise to the feminist movement.

Boston University celebrated the anniversary of "The Feminine Mystique" with a panel led by Virginia Sapiro, dean of the BU College of Arts & Sciences. The panel also included Roberta Salper (CAS'59), Caryl Rivers, Eileen Boris (CAS'70), and Susan Reverby (GRS'82).

The Discoveries series is hosted by Boston University Alumni Association and the College of Arts & Sciences on February 12, 2013.
