    "Uninspiring"

    I was disappointed by this uninspiring interview. The sound quality is poor. I wonder if Naomi Wolf was interviewed over the telephone? She wasn't that good an interviewee: a lot of "ums" and waffling. She was fairly grudging in her appraisal of Friedan's influence and somewhat snobbish over Friedan's modest background rather favouring Simone De Beauvoir's book "The Second Sex" as the more seminal influence on the women's movement. The vast majority of women tied to the kitchen sink (as Friedan would see it) would be more like Friedan in background, whereas De Beauvoir was a French intellectual living a bohemian life with Jean Paul Satre and wasn't really concerned with who did the housework.
    The interview certainly wouldn't encourage me want to read Betty Friedan's book "The Feminine Mystique", whereas the introduction to the new edition of her book read on the Audible podcast no 21 gave a real flavour of the impact that book had in the 1960s and encourages me to buy the audiobook.
