Betty Freidan's Feminine Mystique is told to be the book which opened the door of the second wave of the feminism movement in the United States of the 1960's. Flora Davis, the writer of "Moving the Mountain: The women's movement since the 1960? calls it "the book that changed lives". While talking about this book, Davis tells us that it challenged the suburban women's life habits. Some of them were angry, and others reconsidered themselves. It made working women feel guilty and women staying at home more ambitious. In short, the status of women changed a lot, since the days they had no activities beyond their family. The founding of the National Organization for Woman or NOW (Freidan was one of the founders) in 1966 also showed that the second wave of feminism was on its way. It finally occurred between 1960 and 1980.
