Betty Friedan, R.I.P.

Betty Friedan, Who Ignited Cause in 'Feminine Mystique,' Dies at 85:
a great many aspects of modern life that seem routine today - from unisex Help Wanted ads to women in politics, medicine, the clergy and the military - are the direct result of the hard-won advances she helped women attain.
While her name has become short-hand in mockery of feminism, her achievements will live on in a much better world for everyone.
