In a book called" Social Problems in a Free Society: Myths, Absurdities, and Realities" By Myles J. Kelleher, it is revealed that Betty Friedan, mother of second wave feminism, started her career right after college in 1942 for a radical left wing news press called Federated Press:
Friedan lived around UN employees in a previously inhabited neighborhood by her and her family in Manhattan, NY. She hardly did any "housewifery" for more than a quarter of a century before she wrote the famed "Feminine Mystique". Her book was so far-fetched to academics that Alan Wolfe, a sociologist concluded that " the made-up life of Betty Friedan leaves contemporary readers uneasy about whether anything at all in her book can be trusted",
In 1952, she worked for the" largest communist-led institution of any kind in the US" called United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America.
