Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Helen B. Andelin (1920-2009) was born Helen Berry in Mesa, Arizona. A devout member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Helen Berry attended Brigham Young University, where she met and married Aubrey Passey Andelin (1918-1999). Hoping to share the secret of her own happy marriage with other women, Helen Andelin began teaching marriage enrichment classes and wrote and initially self published her controversial book, Fascinating Womanhood. Emphasizing traditional domestic roles for women, Andelin's teachings conflicted with other women's movements of the era; however, the Fascinating Womanhood movement gained a strong following which is still alive today. Andelin continued to be active in the movement until her death in 2009.
