    She pitched her work to a variety of magazines, but when none of them wanted to publish her work as an article, she extended it into a book. And near the top. Katniss is also a reluctant heroine. Friedan further contended that a woman could have a successful career as well as a family. Writers have grappled with this definition and cautioned that it is important to allow a strong female characters to have weaknesses.

    They foolishly want to alter inequality rather than to achieve truth or justice. For these women, these roles actually turn out to be the most effective ways for them to remain strong and bear up under the suffering they endure. For years, Friedan toured the United States speaking about "The Feminine Mystique" and introducing audiences to her groundbreaking work and to feminism. The book was based on Millett's PhD dissertation, in which she dissected the work of D.

    Lasting Effects of 'The Feminine Mystique' "The Feminine Mystique" became an international bestseller as it launched the second-wave feminist movement. Modesty is about clothing yes, but it is also about tone of voice, posture, grace, charity in word and deed and about avoiding extremes. She surveyed her classmates and learned that none of them was happy with the idealized housewife role. She has no desire to become to face of the revolution and is pressured into the role. For her 15th class reunion, Friedan was asked to conduct a survey of her Smith College classmates. Through her research— which includes many theories, statistics, and firstperson accounts—Friedan pins the blame on an idealized image of femininity that she calls the feminine mystique.

Friedan also argued that the feminine mystique hurt women both personally and professionally, and she held that, for women as well as for men, identity was largely cultivated through a sense of personal achievement, primarily through a career.

Lawless A basic, singular noun refers to just one of something: a book, the cheese, my house. She coined the term feminine mystique to describe the societal assumption that women could find fulfillment through housework, marriage, sexual passivity, and child rearing alone.
