Part social chronicle, part manifesto with insights that continue to inspire.

What impact did Betty Friedan’s groundbreaking work have on your life?

Writing in a time when the average woman first married in her teens and 60 percent of women students dropped out of college to marry, Betty Friedan captured the frustrations and thwarted ambitions of a generation and showed women how they could reclaim their lives.

Join the Library’s Brown Bag Book Club and invited guests in an intergenerational conversation to discuss the impact The Feminine Mystique has had on women since its publication 50 years ago. 

Invited Guests…

  • Anna Caruolo, MSW, LICSW of South Kingstown, RI
  • Joyce May, MLIS, Adult Services and Reference Librarian, East Providence Public Library
  • Hilary Jones, Executive Director of Girls Rock! Rhode Island

And all of you!
