Royal wedding got you down? Are Barbie-style women still stuck on their pedestals? And what about the rest of us? Are you a woman -- or a man -- who lately feels like everything's 'back to the 60s?' Tune in for Wednesday Morning Talk Radio when our guest is Stephanie Coontz, author of 'A Strange Stirring: The Feminine Mystique at the Dawn of the 60s.'

'..A Strange Stirring reveals how a generation of women came to realize their dissatisfaction with domestic life didn't reflect a personal inadequacy but rather a social and political injustice. Coontz examines women's changing status from the 1920s through the 1950s, compares the dilemmas of working-class and middle-class women, white and black, in the early 1960s, and illuminates the new mystiques and new possibilities facing men and women today'
