We've Come, Mmm, Actually Not Such A Terribly Long Way, Baby

Betty Friedan is dead, and we owe her, big time. We owe her thanks, and memory, and respect.

What we do not owe her is the obituary the Beeb news site gave her last night. Want to see the last paragraph? The last paragraph of Betty Friedan's obituary?
In 1947, she married Carl Friedan, with whom she had three children. The marriage ended in divorce after 22 years.
