simone De Beauvoir second sex will ever remain fruitful in the minds of wisdom seeking scholars the book is inspiring,innovative,revolutionary persistent and perfect for the harmonization of opposites.who does not know that man and woman are same.
Man and woman are created in the image of God and they stand equal before God as human beings. Man is said to be the last to be created, and in creating the archetypal man God did a proportionate collection from all the created, to form man so to say. Created in his image, in man then is contained everything that is in God, therefore every thing that is created, is traceable to man, the planets and zodiacal sighs have their station in man. So man is the microcosm of the macrocosm a small replica of the Ubiquitous Omneity and in equality there is no sex. But then, equality does not mean abdicating God’s assigned roles. That is why today, there is surrogate motherhood, single female parents, lesbianism, etc. These are negative ways of responding to gender inequality/feminism.
