Bunson, Matthew. Whether feminists are writing books or reading them or both, the literary world has long been a place for women to tell their stories, in both fiction and nonfiction. It's a powerhouse of a novel that I think is a must read for anyone, but feminists in particular. For others, though, the goals were more abstract or complex.

      Conclusion I. She discusses the conflicts that some women may face in this journey to self-actualization, including their own fears and resistance from others. Her strength and her unforgettable voice make this a book like all her books that no person should miss out on. Not very helpful, I"m afraid.

Betty Friedan A nonfiction book published inThe Feminine Mystique sparked the second-wave of the Women's Movement in the United States, a movement that lasted until the early s and, unlike the first-wave's focus on the one issue of suffrage, expanded its agenda to a wide variety of issues such as sexuality, reproductive rights, the workplace, and more.
