Objective
I can analyze second wave feminism.
Second Wave Feminism
Second Wave
First wave feminism ended after women got the vote in 1919. Second wave feminism began with works such as
The Second Sex
and
The Feminine Mystique
revitalizing the movement for gender equality in the United States.

Many middle-class housewives felt disillusioned and unfulfilled with their lifestyle, as portrayed by Betty Friedan in The Feminine Mystique.

Friedan went on to establish The Nationa Organization for Women (NOW) which advocated for things such as equal pay for women.

NOW was seen as a liberal feminist group, whereas groups such as the redstockings, Cell 16, and the “Jane” movement were seen as more radical.
The Second Sex
Take five minutes to read briefly about one of the very first works of second wave feminism.

Answer the guided questions as your read!
Partner Activity!

One partner will read The Feminine Mystique and answer the guided questions.

The other will read If Men Could Menstruate and answer the guided questions.

BOTH PARTNERS WILL ANNOTATE THEIR READING.

Once you're both finished, partner 1 will ask partner 2 the guided questions for the partner 2 reading.
YOU MAY NOT SIMPLY COPY; READ ALOUD YOUR ANSWERS TO YOUR PARTNER.
Then switch.

Both partners should come up with a one sentence summary for the work they read. Be ready to share!
