Feminism

Hello, My name is Laura Sayen and I am attending school at Kalamazoo Academy in Kalamazoo Michigan. I am in the 8th grade, and we have just begun our annual research papers. Our subject this year had to be an American visionary, and I chose Betty Friedan. I was searching the web for information when I came accross your site. I was wondering if you had any more information to offer.

Unfortunately, I don't know much about Betty Friedan's life--she went to Smith College, became a labor organizer/socialist, wrote The Feminine Mystique in 1963, co-founded The National Organization for Women in 1966, wrote more books, taught at colleges/universities including Cornell, and worked with Women, Men and Media and the Front Page Report. There is a new biography out about her by Judith Hennessee. And you might be able to learn more through NOW, since she was a founder and stayed active with them for a while.
