Description:Was Simone de Beauvoir's feminist classic lost in translation? And has it been rediscovered? Constance Borde and Sheila Malovany-Chevallier, authors of a new, unabridged translation, discuss the unique challenges of Beauvoir's text, the history of its translation and their attempt to capture its philosophical complexity.

"The Second Sex" (Le Deuxième Sexe, 1949) was one of the most important texts of the twentieth century: brilliant, bold (scandalous, to some), complex, and interdisciplinary, ranging across philosophy, literature, history and anthropology. The new translation has generated a new wave of discussion about translation and feminism. The first English translation was done by a male zoologist at Smith College who edited out whole sections and misrepresented Beauvoir's philosophical stance. It was published by Alfred A. Knopf, and correspondence about it is archived in UT's Harry Ransom Center.
