Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir
Book DescriptionOf all the writing that emerged from the existentialist movement, Simone de Beauvoir's groundbreaking study of women will probably have the most extensive and enduring impact. It is at once a work of anthropology and sociology, of biology and psychoanalysis, from the pen of a writer and novelist of penetrating imaginative power. THE SECOND SEX stands, four decades after its first appearance, as the first landmark in the modern feminist upsurge that has transformed perceptions of the social relationship of man and womankind in our time.

Examines the limits of female freedom and explodes our deeply ingrained beliefs about femininity. Liberation, the author argues, entails challenging traditional perceptions of the social relationship between the sexes and, crucially, in achieving economic independence.
UK Kirkus Review » First published in 1949, this still stands as one of the landmarks of the modern feminist movement - taking in huge ideas on anthropology, sociology, biology and psychoanalysis - and transforming our view of the relation between men and women. (Kirkus UK)

Author Biography - Simone de Beauvoir
Simone de Beauvoir was born in Paris in 1908. In 1929 she became the youngest person ever to obtain the agregation in philosophy at the Sorbonne, placing second to Jean-Paul Sartre. She taught at the lycees at Marseille and Rouen from 1931-1937, and in Paris from 1938-1943. After the war, she emerged as one of the leaders of the existentialist movement, working with Sartre on Les Temps Mordernes. The author of several books including The Mandarins (1957) which was awarded the Prix Goncourt, de Beauvoir was one of the most influential thinkers of her generation. She died in 1986.
