Readings for March 3rd

Posted: November 14, 2020 in Readings

As most of you know, we are quickly running out of time, and the President of the U has opted to forego fall break and end the semester earlier.  This means we’ll have to continue to jettison important readings.  A number of you have made a real effort to keep the pace, while others of you have scarcely made an effort at all.  That’s your own business; just know that you’ll be graded accordingly.

Here is a set of three massively influential feminist statements, each of which is quite different from the other two.  I only expect you to read the second, by Linda Nochlin, though the other two are there for youy perusal.

Simone de Beauvoir
The Second Sex (1949)
