The New Frontier of Feminism: Busting the Masculine Mystique

Betty Friedan is undoubtedly the world's best-known feminist activist and author. Her earliest book, The Feminine Mystique (1963) gave birth to the modern women's movement. Her latest book, The Fountain of Age, looks at what it means to grow old in a youth-obsessed culture.

She was interviewed by NPQ editor Nathan Gardels for the "Summing Up the Century" series of the Los Angeles Times syndicate in early December at her apartment in Washington, D.C.
