The Feminine Mystique: Chapter 1

Share the joy

I have been meaning to read this book since my Uni days as a sociology major, in fact hindsight wonders how I managed to past my feminist papers without reading this?  Anyway, I googled ‘Housewife syndrome’ today just for kicks and lo and behold it is (or was at least) a real condition, treated with a delightful mix of drugs, group counseling and probably a healthy smattering of shock therapy.  Some days I feel like shock therapy sounds like a great idea. 

Any-who, for all of the housewives out there,  here is a link to the first chapter of The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan, 1963  Wiki
