retro-1291738_1920I decided to write about Betty Friedan, because she is a woman I admire and one I didn’t learn about in school. I do believe that she should be added to the history class.

Betty Friedman was a writer that explored the idea of women finding personal fulfilment outside of their traditional roles.

Thank goodness she did, because so many of us are happier outside of these roles. Personally I cannot stand the “Stanford wife” life. It simply gives me the creeps.

Betty was also was one of the founders of the National Organisation for Women (NOW), which is still making an impact to this day. I encourage you to follow the link and see what campaigns they are currently working on.

Betty Friedman has left us with an amazing legacy and is to this day a great role model.
