Announcing the End of Summer Salon!




 Fifty years ago, Betty Friedan’s The Feminist Mystique rejuvenated the feminist movement with its thoughtful inquiry into “The Problem That Has No Name” — the sneaking suspicion that there could be more to female fulfillment than having a well-kept home and well-adjusted children. Friedan’s well-supported argument runs to 500+ pages and was republished this year with an introduction by the ever-droll Gail Collins.


Melissa Mizel will be hosting a salon to discuss the book, what it meant then and what it means now (Mawrters of all ages hoped for), at the end of the summer on a date to be specified by the end of July.  Given the book’s length, however, we wanted to let you know that the event was planned so that if your summer reading runs to romances, mysteries or gossipy memoirs you can squeeze chunks of this nutritious reading in and around the more forgettable morsels.
