Simone de Beauvoir
By María Isabel Sánchez Vegara, illustrated by Christine Roussey
La courte échelle
When Simone was little, her father often told her that she had a man’s brain. She wondered what that could mean. After studying philosophy, she wrote a book to demonstrate that women are not inferior to men, but their equals. This important work, sold throughout the world, allowed her to be considered as the mother of feminism.
