Betty Friedman and Al Lewis Both Pass Away

By Elaine Meinel Supkis
Two famous New Yorkers, Betty Friedman and Al "Gandpa Munster" Lewis died yesterday. I was always a "feminist" since I could remember, when I used to fight against the school policy of banning any sensible clothes for girls, forcing them to wear skirts but that was put into context and became an informed struggle for my own civil rights only after reading "The Feminist Mystique." Al Lewis was a radical leftist and Village ficture. He was funny, accessible, a die-hard hippie who revelled in his life and enjoyed everything to the hilt
