Great to see #BecomingBeauvoir reviewed alongside volume 2 of the English translation of Beauvoir's Cahiers de jeunesse/Diary of a Philosophy Student in !
“The situation of woman is that she—a free and autonomous being like all human creatures—nevertheless finds herself living in a world where men compel her to assume the status of the Other.”
A Woman’s Work | by Elaine Blair. “Beauvoir shows in The Second Sex how centuries of law, custom, and myth have reiterated the idea that female people are not quite as good, or as real, or as human as male ones.”
