As a matter of fact

As a matter of fact, none of this would have been possible without powerful and influential leaders. The most well-known leader of this Women’s Liberation movement was Betty Friedan the author of The Feminine Mystique in 1963. Friedan wrote this book that is generally about the unhappiness, injustice and discrimination women experienced during the 20th century, it focuses on the idea of how society taught women were meant to be no more than housewives, mothers or wives. It’s interesting how Betty called this women’s unhappiness has a “problem with no name”. (American Women in the 20th century) Most of this women, if not all of them, were used to the idea that their only role was in the house raising their families so most of them just adapted to that lifestyle while others were unhappy with it but still didn’t think a change was possible. The Feminine Mystique was a light to a women’s dark world ruled by men, when this book got published it brought enlightenment women’s lives because it made each one of them realize how unfair their life was and how depressing was living their whole lives labeled as a less worthy individual only meant to please men. One of the most interesting effects that this book had was how women were able to free themselves from society’s idea of what was being a woman and what was a woman meant to do. (Linda Nap feminine)
