Simone de Beauvoir, Women, Feminism
This thesis will examine Beauvoir's views on women, her unique brand of feminism. The following questions will be pursued: How did Beauvoir break out of the traditional female role as a young woman? What were Beauvoir's views on women in general? On various types of women? How do Beauvoir's novels reflect her attitudes toward the condition of women? And why? How did other aspects of her thought- her attraction to existentialism and Marxism, her rebellion against her bourgeois background, affect her response to feminist issues?
