|Personal Fact of Betty Friedan|
A leading voice of women’s rights movement, Betty Friedan was a phenomenal woman, often credited with starting the second wave of feminism in the United States, in the 20th century. She had founded many organizations to raise awareness for bridging the gap between men and women in society. Having been a bright student throughout school, she graduated summa cum laude from college, majoring in Psychology.
An ardent worker for newspapers, she wrote articles for columns since her school days, a passion that continued into college, and after. Later, she worked as a journalist for leftist publications and assignments. The jewels in the crown to her writing career were the six books published by her, including her autobiography Life So Far. In all her books, she has tried to analyze the woman’s role in society and put forth ideas for her liberation from being the subdued one.
She also worked as a visiting professor in various colleges. Though her struggle was for women’s equality, she was not in favor of feminism against men or the family. She sought for an agenda where the working woman was supported by child care, health care, housing and other facilities. She aimed for a political movement of women and men working towards a new society.
