In Beyond Gender, Betty Friedan explores her own thoughts and the exchanges of the seminar she convened. She raises such issues as the social anxiety caused by corporate downsizing, the displacement of middle-aged male employees, and the expansion of part-time and temporary work due to outsourcing, which disproportionately affects women workers.
She describes the loss of community life and community space in the fast-paced, consumption-oriented suburbs. And she presents an array of new options for the world of work and community.
