WOMENS RIGHTS MOVEMENT IN AMERICA 2
Friedan Betty (1963) was brought up in America in the mid-twentieth century when women
were denied their feminine rights. She witnessed women being denied the right to education so
that they take care of their husbands and children. Majority of them were jobless, and only a few
managed to get a low paying part time job such as Secretariat at an older age. In those years,

for men and those who were given a chance preferred to be housewives (Friedan, 1963).

male counterparts. Their male counterpart employees didn’t enjoy their company, and they felt
