Friedan’s work, too, has been vigorously critiqued by academic feminists on the grounds of its political conservatism and lack of attention to the diversity among men and women. , Tong 1998). My interest here is in Friedan’s legacy regarding age and women’s development over the life course, areas of her work that academic feminists have largely overlooked. In this chapter, I provide a comparative reading of The Feminine Mystique, published when Friedan was forty-two, and The Fountain of Age, published when she was seventy-two, as the bookend to The Feminine Mystique (Hennessee 1999).

She maintains the integrity of her original research but admits that her interviews with educated women like herself were not “systematic” and that she was clearly investigating a white, middle-class phenomenon. She validates this approach, however, in terms of social history. ’ They were, mainly, middle-class, educated white women” (Friedan 2000: 119). Friedan also draws on her experiences with Communist Party politics and labor writing to justify her emphasis on the middle class in The Feminine Mystique.

For Friedan, women’s development is age related, since the greatest opportunities for change typically occur at age-based transitional periods in the life course—at the brink of adolescence, adulthood, midlife, and old age. This point has been reinforced recently by popular writers and feminist researchers of the midlife (Borysenko 1996; Gullette 1997; Bolen 1994, 2001; Shellenbarger 2004; Levine 2005). And so, as a culture, we must allow women’s bodies, minds, and spirits to grow into old age.
