The Feminine Mystique, by Betty Friedan, was one of the most important and influential texts of feminism in the 1960s. It was and is important because it helped encourage so many women, during that time and later, to re-examine their lives and their social roles. Since feminism has been one of the most influential social movements of the last fifty years, Friedan's book helped fundamentally change life in the United States during this period.
