On ne naît pas femme: on le devient

The Life of a Sentence

Edited by Bonnie Mann and Martina Ferrari

  • The only book of its kind to focus singularly on Beauvoir's most famous sentence
  • Provides a case study for what happens to such an incendiary sentence across languages, cultures, and geographic contexts
  • Questions the theory of social construction as the accepted feminist position on sexual difference
  • Interdisciplinary in approach, it works along the borders of philosophy and translation studies, allowing new fields to speak to each other in a feminist context
