Simone de Beauvoir – Why I Am A Feminist

“This is probably the first time you have seen Simone de Beauvoir. Like Jean-Paul Sartre, her lifelong companion, she has always refused, until this year, to appear on TV. Her novels, such as The Mandarins, awarded the 1954 Prix Goncourt, or reminiscences like Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter, have made her known to the public as one of the greatest writers of today. But it’s through her essay The Second Sex, published over 25 years ago, that she has played a historic role in transforming the ideas of our time.”
