THINKING THURSDAY: The Second Sex: Men and Women are Equal: Simone de Beauvoir

Thinking Thursday is about learning how to think. We live in a world where people like to tell us what to think, but has anyone taught us how to think?

On this weeks episode, we talk about Simone de Beauvoir. She is well known for her extensive work illuminating the ways in which women had become secondary to men throughout history. Fittingly, she is also well known as the lifelong partner to Jean-Paul Sartre, one of the most notable 20th-century philosophers.
