In 1963, Betty Friedan’s book, The Feminine Mystique, ignited the contemporary women’s movement by debunking the myth that American housewives’ complete personal fulfillment should be confined to their domestic spheres. By presenting women’s lives (and rights) as stifling, dehumanizing and repressed, she triggered the urge for women’s independence and transformed the very fabric of society. It was called feminism and women have never been the same since.
Today, we stand at the threshold of a new rebellion. As women of the next millennium, we lay claim to our own destiny in new ways: the independence of thought and the power to make our own intelligent, informed decisions. Long freed from the aprons of the 50’s, we now seek the liberty of choice that comes from knowledge, and in no area is this as critical as that which pertains to our amazing body and the science that binds it together, our health.
As the Age of Information morphs into the Age of Wisdom, where raw, unfiltered information is just not good enough, we pursue a more qualified, prioritized truth set against a background of experience – Wisdom.
Just as Friedan’s women pioneered new roles and relationships, we are changing the conversation about women’s health. First by sharing the wisdom of other women dealing with disease, then studying the different dimensions of medicine that dominate our individual health profiles, we are creating a language of choice. My choice - your choice, hold the mystique.
