When Betty Friedan published The Feminine Mystique today in 1963, a book which would reach an audience of millions, she changed lives.

None of what Friedan said would seem to be rocket science today. She claimed that millions of housewives were unhappy with their lives, and wanted more than to simply keep their men and children happy. And she argued that it was OK not only to want more but to pursue more, making her an icon of the feminist movement.

Working women, of all persuasions, owe Friedan a great debt of gratitude, and we are toasting her with a White Lady.
