Important women of the 1950s Simone de Beauvoir - French Simone de Beauvoir was a French philosopher and social theorist. She wrote very popular travel diaries about the US and China, published essays especially in the 1950s and 1960s.

In the midest of an abstract discussion it is vexing to hear a man say: ‛You think thus and so because you are a woman’ ; but I know my only defense is to reply: ‛ I think thus and so because it’s true,’ thereby removing my subjective self from the argument.
