Publisher's Summary

Stephanie Coontz is a social historian and in her most recent book she revisits the one book that drastically created change for women in the United States nearly fifty years ago. In A Strange Stirring: “The Feminine Mystique” and American Women at the Dawn of the 1960s, Coontz reflects on the advances and obstacles of feminism since that time.

Then, in Franklin and Eleanor, biographer Hazel Rowley examines the evolution of the Roosevelt marriage from conventional Victorian union to a radical, political partnership. The Roosevelt marriage was also one filled with scandal: FDR’s lifelong affair with Lucy Mercer, Eleanor’s purported lesbianism, and many more in between. [Broadcast Date: January 31, 2011]
