Simone de Beauvoir was born in Paris, France, in 1908. She received a degree in philosophy from La Sorbonne at the age of 21. This allowed her to teach literature, philosophy, ancient Latin, classical Greek and mathematics.
She played a very important role in the political life of her time. In 1945, together with J. P. Sartre, Albert Camus and Maurice Merleau-Ponty, she founded the magazine Les temps modernes, which became a political and cultural reference of French thinking in the mid-twentieth century.
Between 1946 and 1949 she wrote The Second Sex. In it she elaborates a history of the social condition of women and analyzes the different characteristics of male oppression. She argues that by being excluded from the processes of production and confined to the home and reproductive functions, women lose all social ties and with them the possibility of being free.
She analyzed the gender situation from the point of view of biology, psychoanalysis and Marxism. Her work destroys the feminine myths, and incites to look for an authentic liberation. She argues that the struggle for women's emancipation is distinct from and parallel to the class struggle, and that the main problem facing the "weaker sex" is not ideological, but economic:
"As long as perfect economic equality in society is not realized, and as long as customs allow women to enjoy as wives and mistresses the privileges that belong to some men, the dream of passive success will remain, holding back their own fulfillment."
At the end of the 60's she published La mujer rota, where she exposes the feminist existentialism by expressing, through three stories, her feminist philosophy framed by the influence of Jean-Paul Sartre, but with the contribution of her approach, pointing out the conditions that have led women to live subdued in a world that expects from them ideal behaviors.
She actively participated in the defense of women's rights, especially in the struggle for the legalization of abortion in France. In 1971 she wrote, together with other women, the Manifesto of the 343, in which she stated that she had practiced abortion, which exposed her to criminal sanctions.
Simone de Beauvoir died in Paris, France, in 1986, leaving numerous works. Among them are philosophical essays, novels, short stories and plays.
Born in 1974, lives in Geneva. French-Swiss playwright, screenwriter and performer, she lived her first years in Mexico.
