The passing of Betty Friedan (The Feminist Mystique) and Al Lewis (grandpa on the Munsters) has been noted.
Personally, I believe Al Lewis in his role on the Munsters and in the hilarious comedy CAR 54 WHERE ARE YOU, did more good for the country than Betty Friedan. Al brought cheer and laughter to several generations; Betty brought unhappiness and despair to many.
While you have to be careful when reading statistics; a couple of years ago I read that 2/3 of all divorces are now initiated by women.
Perhaps that is Betty Friedan’s true legacy. Women get divorced and destroy their own safety net.
