THIS IS WHAT A FEMINIST LOOKS LIKE: GILBERT, GUBAR, AND THE FEMININE MYSTIQUE

On February 28th, the National Book Critics Circle will present their lifetime achievement award to Sandra Gilbert and Susan Gubar. Their 1979 book, The Madwoman in the Attic, changed the way we think about Victorian literature. And in 1985, they co-edited the indispensable Norton Anthology of Literature by Women, currently in its third edition. Ron Charles at the Washington Post has written a great review of their pioneering work over the years.

We mention this background simply to convey how incredible it is to see these two brilliant women who have contributed so much to feminist thought over the past four decades discussing The Feminine Mystique as it celebrates its 50th anniversary this month. Watch the video.
