Why Simone de Beauvoir (1/9/1908) Became a Feminist, Her "Love Contract" with Sartre & Why Her Ideas Prevail
We know her for her book, The Second Sex, and her lasting relationship with Philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre. But there is so much more to tell. That's why I've used Storify for this one. Just click on any slide in the presentation below to drill into the content. The video, "Why I Became a Feminist" includes English subtitles. The lecture on her life and relationship with Sartre discusses their "contract," and her quotes are included here and there throughout.
If you’re reading this website, think of me as a troubadour standing on the street corner, strumming a guitar and singing a few songs. Not everyone who comes this way is able to make contribution.
