"Friedan's famous phrase, "the problem that had no name," often quoted to describe the condition of women in this society, actually referred to the plight of a select group of college-educated, middle-and upper class, married white women--housewives bored with leisure, with the home, with the children, with buying products, who wanted more out of life. --that "more" she defined as careers. She did not discuss who would be called in to take care of the children and maintain the home if more women like herself were freed from their house labor and given equal access with white men to the professions. --she did not tell readers whether it was more fulfilling to be a maid, a babysitter, a factory worker, a clerk, or a prostitute than to be a leisure-class housewife." -Bell Hooks with the bars.
