Friedan, A Quiet Legend

I'd like to send a shout out to Betty Friedan, author of The Feminine Mystique. She died over the weekend, but her work and influence will live on forever.

Funny, how Friedan looked a little like another outspoken Betty (Bette, actually):



(Did you know that Bette Davis was from Lowell? Nuts!)

Oh My Gosh! I could slap you!
I loved Betty and Bette, but that was a low blow!

I'm very happy I got to hear Friedan speak this last spring & meet her. I consider myself very lucky and felt awful that there were not more women my age there. At 34, I was one of the youngest!

Whatchoo talkin? I love them, too! Both wonderful, independent-minded women. Do you think that Betty should be insulted because I said she looks like Bette? Admit it - she's got Bette Davis eyes!
How is this a low blow, Lynanne? Can I call you Lynanne?

Lucky that you got to see Betty. Good, long life, that woman had.

I just think there are better pictures of Bette!

And, no. No! For this once you may not call me Lynanne!

OooOOOooooh. I see, Wormtown. Man, I loved What Ever Happened to Mary Jane? It's so weird to see Joan Crawford in this vulnerable role, opposite someone who verbally and physically assaults her. You know, knowing what we all know now. Scrub, Christina! Scrub!

I meant Baby Jane. Obviously.
