Betty Friedan Passes
On Saturday, Feminist leader Betty Friedan died. She was the author of the ground-breaking book The Feminine Mystique. She was also the founder of the National Organization for Women (NOW), convener of the National Women's Political Caucus and a leader in the efforts to pass the Equal Rights Amendment.
