Definitely going to read the entire text at some point Her thoughts and observations about the female male relationship are mind blowing.

3.5 Certain paragraphs were very interesting, and putting it into historical perspective makes this very impressive, but this was REALLY HARD to read Almost two months to read 93 pages is not okay I wasn t reading the entire two months, don t be afraid.

I loved this honestly The language in this one is much easier to understand due to it being written in 1949 and not the 1700s Simone pegs almost every single thing that is wrong with patriarchy in society and all of this is horrifyingly still present in today s society Moving from Mary Wollstonecraft s ideas, Simone is much forward thinking in regards to sexual relations and women She is much open and really nails how different and unfair the thinking between men and women are in that aspect a [...]

The second Sex was written nearly 70 years ago and there are many aspects of Simone de Beauvoir s analysis that still feel relevant and important I found the book enjoyable and useful because of this But especially I enjoyed her thoughts on art and creativity and what it takes to produce great art or to make a significant contribution to society opinion understanding She says that A work of art is not a mirage, it is a solid object to construct it, one must know one s craft She also says Error c [...]

I m so thrilled that I finally got the chance to read Excerpts from The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir I expected it to be difficult to read, dense, but found it remarkably accessible and unsurprisingly, brilliant So not every female human being is necessarily a woman she must take part in this mysterious and endangered reality known as femininity Is femininity secreted by the ovaries Is it enshrined in a Platonic heaven Is a frilly petticoat enough to bring it down to earth De Beauvoir is a [...]

It was an interesting read It made me think about how my experiences are out from how see sees the world at that time But I most be honest I wasn t very focused in the end, because I wanted to finished it today before giving it back to my friend I felt it to be bit of a hard read, since it is a very angrily written and the author has poured out her feelings into it, which in my opinion made it so you need to focused while reading which seems weird to say, but I just mean that it is not a easy br [...]

I can imagine how radical the ideas presented by de Beauvoir were back in the day Some excerpts really resonated with me Still I glimpsed period typical homo and transphobia It put me off a bit.I m not sure if I want to spend my time reading the unabridged version Probably not It just didn t age well enough.

What I appreciated the most while reading the abridged version of Beauvoir s The Second Sex was her unapologetic manner of writing In the provided chapters, Beauvoir shifts back and forth between a clear cut analysis of the relation between men and women as she perceived them during her time to flowing passages as full of criticism as her analysis , which have a heavier philosophical and personal tone Beauvoir offers her take on many thought provoking questions regarding the subordination of wom [...]
