But the medias like magazines and tv didn't say that women had no reason to be unhappy unless they tried to be successful outside of the 'usual' stay at home mother.
So she wrote a book called The Feminine Mystique, interviewing a lot of mothers and young wives. With this, it helped bring attention to the fact that although it's ok to be a stay at home mother, if they wanted different in their life, there's not much opportunity for change.
