Vol 3 (2015): Women as Wives & Workers: Marking Fifty Years of The Feminine Mystique

This special issue contains five articles that build upon papers presented at an anniversary conference of the same name in 2013, the year that Betty Friedan’s iconic text turned fifty.  The articles explore, challenge and supplement The Feminine Mystique, highlighting its popular and scholarly influence as well as its selectivity and silences.  Individually and collectively, the articles add new perspectives to the existing literature on Friedan and her work.  At the same time, they also contribute to understandings of the complex relationship between married women, domesticity and paid employment in the twentieth century, both in the US and the UK.
