“Aging is not lost youth, but a new stage of opportunity and strength.”

Shamefully, all I knew about Betty Friedan was her book Feminine Mystique (I’m kind of a young’n) without any of her back story. She’s played by Tracey Ullman. I was so curious after watching episodes 4/5, I spent a few hours on the Internet getting to know her.
Must be the drms are brainwashing young women. Being duped again. In college I attended a lecture by Betty Friedan. The feminine mystique really changed many of our lives. We all did well as professional women http://etc.you work hard you do well
I worry abt our young women, too. I’m old enough to remember Betty Friedan’s lecture at @mtholyoke when I was a junior. We’ve taken such strides since that year, but a bunch of old men (and some women - even worse) want to set us back.
The Time Team has to keep Betty Friedan, future author of The Feminine Mystique (which inspired the second wave feminist movement in the 60s), alive and on her path as a young woman in Peoria. #RenewTimeless
True. And, I want to thank you for not calling me an old bitty. I get this from young folks when I express my point of view. I read Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinems books on female liberation. I just think the younger generation puts too much emphasis on sexual expression.
As a 49yo feminist taught in a Woman's Stud Dept in the late 80's-early 90's at a bad a$$ Univ by 2ndWave Feminists, I hear you. I literally got to hang w/Betty Friedan one night. But there are awesome young feminists now too. Push back w/every generation. https://twitter.com/MendoKC/status/1221104901813460992?s=19…
We are loving it so far. Betty Friedan co-founded our organization in 1993 after she became pissed off that the NRA was targeting women for gun sales.
Thanks for helping to bring this story to a new generation of young women. #mrsamerica
Don Draper never existed. Neither did his kids. It is funny that middle-aged people use the one-dimensional show on AMC to try to educate young people on topics ranging from the atom bomb to Dr. King’s murder to pollution to Betty Friedan’s impact on Secretaries’ Day. Tee hee!
So Sanders isn't gorgeous, but @SpacePirateUSA is still pretty young. The evil within hasn't had a chance to burn from her soul outward to the surface and ravage her appearance. In time, she'll look like Joy Behar or Betty Friedan.
No, he came of age in the 50s, when women's rights were not a thing( when did Betty Friedan first publish?). We married very young. They didn't really take off until the 70s, and it's nigh impossible to get a man of that age to change his ways
