The Second Sex

“All oppression creates a state of war. And this is no exception.”

“The body is not a thing, it is a situation: it is our grasp on the world and our sketch of our project”


“Two separate beings, in different circumstances, face to face in freedom and seeking justification of their existence through one another, will always live an adventure full of risk and promise."

“Representation of the world, like the world itself, is the work of men; they describe it from their own point of view, which they confuse with absolute truth.”

“Capabilities are clearly manifested only when they have been realized.”

“What would Prince Charming have for occupation if he had not to awaken the Sleeping beauty?”

Simone de Beauvoir
