International Women's Day 2015: Celebrating the whirlwind wit of Simone de Beauvoir #feminism

International Women's Day 2015: Celebrating the whirlwind wit of Simone de Beauvoir #feminism | Exploring Feminism | Scoop.it
It is probably fair to say that I approached Simone de Beauvoir the wrong way round: I visited her grave before I read a word she'd written. This was not particularly my intention. Many years ago I was in Paris, with a handsome man who liked Sartre (my youth was filled with such men, several of whom also played the guitar. I have nothing to offer in my defence). He liked Sartre so much that he wanted to visit the great man's grave.
