Addressing the dissatisfactions confronting suburban housewives of the 1950s and 60s, this manifesto became the clarion call to a new generation of feminists.

While this book was written in 1963 it has held up well to time. The only out of date parts are sections that refer to Sigmund Freud. For example, Autism is blamed on a "distant mother." Science has disproved this. Overall, this book is a must read for men and women.

The Feminine Mystique is still relevant and insightful in 2011. I highly recommend it.

I look at current advertisement differently now. However in the ad world I don't think a whole lot has changed. The Mr. Clean commercials still show a woman standing proudly over her clean kitchen floor.

I had never read this and probably won't finish it because it is dated and focuses on women getting a job. Our issues have changed since the '60's. Now we are getting the jobs, but not always equal pay or opportunity. Good old boys still alive and well at least in the midwest.
