Simone de Beauvoir Centenary Celebrated

Simone de Beauvoir is one of the towering figures of 20th century France. While she has perhaps slipped into the shadows of American memory, her pioneering work — The Second Sex — is still regarded as one of the cornerstones of modern feminist thinking. This year, the centenary of her birth, her writing is being read and discussed at symposia around the world.
