Betty Friedan was an iconic American writer, activist and feminist, who was the creator of The Feminine Mystique, which led to the second wave of American feminism in the 20th century. One of the most prominent figures in the women's movement in the United States, she was the co-founder and first president of the National Organization for Women. The idea of this organization was to empower women into the mainstream of the society, bringing them at par with the opposite gender. Her other notable works include Beyond Gender, It Changed My Life: Writings on the Women's Movement and The Second Stage. This National Women's Hall of Fame inductee was presented with honorary doctorate of humane letter from Smith College, State University at Stony Brook, Columbia University and Bradley University.
