Beyond Gender: The New Politics of Work and Family

This book is about Betty Friedan
In "Beyond Gender: The New Politics of Work and Family," published on October 10, 1997, iconic feminist leader Betty Friedan delivers a compelling call for a radical restructuring of societal norms and economic structures that transcend traditional lines of gender, race, and political beliefs. Building upon her revolutionary work as the author of "The Feminine Mystique" and founder of the National Organization for Women, Friedan challenges the status quo, arguing that the fight for equality has evolved beyond mere gender issues. This book is an urgent manifesto for a new movement that prioritizes universal human interests and fosters a community conducive to equality of opportunity. Friedan facilitates a critical dialogue among diverse experts, addressing the pressing issues of the 1990s such as corporate downsizing, the plight of displaced workers, and the erosion of community spaces. Ideal for college students exploring economic justice, gender equality, and racial justice, "Beyond Gender" urges a reevaluation of how work and family intersect in modern society, pushing readers to envision a revamped framework for progressive activism.
