Author Simone de,1908- Beauvoir Published by Vintage Classics ISBN 9781784870386 EAN 9781784870386 Bic Code Cover Paperback
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.
