Does not this woman inspire cofindence? She refuused to marry Jean Paul Sartre because she understood the philosoiphical necessity of doing so. I f you'venever read "Le deuxieme sex" then you might think it's all about the men....

I admit that while I know who she is -- I haven't read enough to comment.

However, I am all for not marrying. :-)

I read "The Second Sex" forty years ago. At the time I was very impressed with de Beauvoir's thinking, much of which I had never before encountered. I am not well read in feminine literature but what reading I have done always left me feeling that the genre owed a lot more credit to de Beauvoir than it gives her. She's a good writer who deserves a high place, I believe, in the pantheon of feminist icons.
