Talk | MAD MEN, WORKING “GIRLS” AND DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES: AMERICAN WOMEN AT THE DAWN OF THE 1960S
In 1963, Betty Friedan unleashed a storm of controversy with her best-selling book, The Feminine Mystique. Hear what life was really like for women in that era, how a generation of women came to realize that their dissatisfaction reflected not a personal weakness but a political injustice, and what has and has not changed since. Stephanie Coontz’s most recent book is A Strange Stirring: The Feminine Mystique and American Women at the Dawn of the 1960s.
Tickets from $18, held at 92YTribeca, 200 Hudson Street.
