“No woman gets an orgasm from shining the kitchen floor. ”
Betty Friedan

“Aging is not 'lost youth' but a new stage of opportunity and strength.”
Betty Friedan

“It is easier to live through someone else than to complete yourself. The freedom to lead and plan your own life is frightening if you have never faced it before. It is frightening when a woman finally realizes that there is no answer to the question 'who am I' except the voice inside herself.”
Betty Friedan
