Professors Fraterrigo and Nickerson Publish in "Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies"
Congratulations to Dr. Elizabeth Fraterrigo and Dr. Michelle Nickerson on the publication of their essays in the upcoming issue of Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies. Dr. Nickerson's essay, "The Feminine Mystique at 50: Reflecting on the Book That Inspired, Angered, and Forever Changed America," co-authored with Joan Marie Johnson and Francesca Morgan, discusses the roundtable that the authors organized at the Newberry Library in November 2013 and introduces the work presented at the Newberry and in print in this issue of Frontiers. Dr. Fraterrigo's essay, "'The Happy Housewife Heroine' and 'The Sexual Sell': Legacies of Betty Friedan's Critique of the Image of Women," based on her paper presented at the Newberry, explores Friedan's assessment of the portrayal of women in postwar media.
