Stephanie Coontz discusses Betty Friedan’s landmark book on Well Read

Remember “The Feminine Mystique” and how it turned the world upside down for women in the 1960s? You don’t? Well, trust me, it did.

This week “Well Read,” the books and authors television program on state public access channel TVW, featured Stephanie Coontz, Evergreen State College professor and one of the nation’s eminent social historians. Coontz and host Terry Tazioli discussed her book “A Strange Stirring,” the story of how Betty Friedan’s book “The Feminine Mystique” tapped into a deep vein of discontent with women trapped in traditional roles (think “Mad Men”).

The show aired Tuesday on TVW and on Wednesday on KBTC, Tacoma’s public television station. You can view it here:
