When Simone de Beauvoir was a little girl, her father would proudly boast that she had the brain of a man – whatever that meant.
But later, after years of studying, Simone would write a book that challenged the role of women in society, sending shock waves around the world.
This book is suitable for children between 5 and 7 years of age.
