The Second Sex (Vintage Feminism Short Edition) Simone de Beauvoir

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY NATALIE HAYNES

When this book was first published in 1949 it was to outrage and scandal. Never before had the case for female liberty been so forcefully and successfully argued. De Beauvoir’s belief that ‘One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman’ switched on light bulbs in the heads of a generation of women and began a fight for greater equality and economic independence. These pages contain the key passages of the book that changed perceptions of women forever.

TRANSLATED BY CONSTANCE BORDE AND SHEILA MALOVANY-CHEVALLIER

ANNOTATED AND INTRODUCED BY MARTINE REID

A great intro to a classic text. Add this to one of our feminist tees for a thoughtful gift. Stacey X
