First published in 1963, Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique was a bombshell of a book, forever changing the way thousands of American women thought about their lives, and helping to fuel the second-wave feminist movement. What has The Feminine Mystiquemeant to succeeding generations of American women? What social and political changes might we owe to Friedan's insights and the galvanizing effect of her writings? What can a rereading of the book still teach us today?

Please join Ariel Levy, Anne Roiphe, Katie Roiphe and Gail Sheehy for this special event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the publication of The Feminine Mystique.
