Betty Friedan was a founder and first president of the National Organization for Women and convener of the National Women's Political Caucus and the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL). She was author of The Feminine Mystique and The Fountain of Age.
Betty Friedan has been and remains a bridge between conservative
and radical elements in feminism, and an ardent advocate of harmony
and human values. -- Marilyn French * Esquire *
'It Changed My Life' is a series of essays amounting to a thoughtful first-person history of the nascent feminist movement in the 1950s and '60s... [It is] perfect for mothers to give to daughters who 'don't get' feminism. -- H. J. Kirchhoff * Globe and Mail *
