BOSTON (AP) — Fifty years after its publication, a scheduled Boston University symposium will discuss the impact of Betty Friedan’s book ‘‘The Feminine Mystique.’’
Panelists at the Feb. 12 event will include women’s studies scholars and historians who will look at how the book has influenced American culture.
The 1963 book explored ‘‘this problem that has no name,’’ which was described as a lack of fulfillment experienced by educated women who accepted an idealized homemaking role.
The free event is open to the public, but advance registration is recommended.
