King and Friedan and change. Wed, 02/8/06 2:59 AM (permalink)
The passing of Coretta Scott King and Bette Friedan was a marker for me. I thought a lot about change, how so much is different from when these women entered public life over half a century ago. In talking to my son, he still remains incredulous that there was ever a time when blacks and whites could not drink from the same water fountain or a time when women were considered less able and intelligent than men. These women were a great force for change in America and I thank them for the good things they helped accomplish.
