WE CAN DO IT
In 1960 the world of American women was limited in almost every respect from family life to the workplace.
Betty Friedan and her novel "Feminine Mystique" helped establish the Organization of Women, and was a great read for the movement.
In 1966 because the EEOC was unable to enforce the Civil Rights Act, 28 women formed the National Organization for Women (NOW). Betty Friedan was elected the first national president of the Organization at the founding conference held in Washington D.C.
The movement boomed in the 1970s, when groups attracted many members very quickly and attendance at national women's conventions jumped from over 400 in 1972, to over 2000 in 1975.
The 38 percent of American women who worked in 1960 were largely limited to jobs as teacher, nurse, or secretary. They now wanted more opportunities and to be treated the same as men in the workforce.
The feminist movement was not led by a single figure or group.
It was said that "The women's movement is non-hierarchical, it does things collectively and experimentally."
