"One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman" - Simone de Beauvoir

In this groundbreaking work of feminism Simone de Beauvoir examines the limits of female freedom and explodes our deeply ingrained beliefs about femininity.

Liberation, she argues, entails challenging traditional perceptions of the social relationship between the sexes and, crucially, in achieving economic independence.

Drawing on sociology, anthropology and biology, The Second Sex is as important and relevant today as when it was first published in 1949.
