OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

This symposium marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of Betty Friedan’s groundbreaking book The Feminine Mystique. Friedan, a union activist and journalist, transformed the national conversation about the role of women in American society with her book, leading to the creation of the National Organization for Women (NOW) in 1965. This event features presentations and intergenerational dialogues about feminism’s past and present, particularly responses to and the continuing relevance of The Feminine Mystique.

The symposium is accompanied by an exhibition presented by the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center (SJDC) at Parsons of student works inspired by Friedan’s writing, curated by Parsons MA Decorative Arts and Design alumnae Natalie Balthrop and Deborah Engel.
