Faehmel B. College women in the nuclear age : cultural literacy and female identity, 1940-1960. New Brunswick, N.J.: Rutgers University Press; 2012. Abstract

"In the popular imagination, American women during the time between the end of World War II and the 1960s--the era of the so-called 'feminine mystique'--were ultraconservative and passive. College Women in the Nuclear Age takes a fresh look at these women, showing them actively searching for their place in the world while engaging with the larger intellectual and political movements of the times."
