The Second Sex

Simone de Beauvoir, one the founding women of the feminist movement would have been 100 today. As France starts a celebration this week of the centennial of Simone de Beauvoir’s birth, The Guardian reports that scholars are worried that too much attention will be paid to the philosopher’s sex life and not enough to her ideas. Gee, it doesn’t seem like things change do they, as our media concentrates on Hillary’s emotional assertions.

Here’s your chance to take a look inside the head of woman far ahead of her time, I think we refer to that as genius or visionary, who would’ve thought those ideas lay inside that delicate, sensitive head.
