Simone de Beauvoir told me, for woman there is no other way out than to work for her liberation. No more terror of fertility. No more Vassalage. No more Altruism. I am not the OTHER. Absolute sex. Body for exploitation. I redeem myself from my own WILL. Because I am I, Alfa and Omega, the most harmful of all the wild animals – THE WOMAN.
*Simone Lucie Ernestine Marie Bertrand de Beauvoir (9 January 1908 – 14 April 1986) was a French writer, intellectual, existentialist philosopher, political activist, feminist and social theorist. Though she did not consider herself a philosopher, she had a significant influence on both feminist existentialism and feminist theory.
