Das andere Geschlecht ist ein sozialgeschichtliches philosophisches Werk der französischen Philosophin und Schriftstellerin Simone de Beauvoir, das 1949 in Frankreich unter dem Titel Le Deuxième Sexe („Das zweite Geschlecht“) in zwei Bänden, Les faits et les mythes („Die Tatsachen und die Mythen“) und L’expérience vécue („Die gelebte Erfahrung“), erschien. Die deutsche Erstausgabe wurde erstmals 1951 im Rowohlt Verlag in einem Band gedruckt.

Das Buch gilt als entscheidendes Grundlagenwerk der sogenannten zweiten Welle des Feminismus, da es erstmals die Kategorie Geschlecht ins Zentrum einer sozialwissenschaftlichen Untersuchung stellte und dabei konsequent zwischen biologischem Geschlecht und kultureller bzw. sozialer Prägung von Geschlecht unterschied. Es legte damit die Grundlagen für die Frauen- und Geschlechterforschung bzw. Gender Studies.

Auf der Liste der 100 Bücher des Jahrhunderts von Le Monde steht es an elfter Stelle.

Work Description

The Second Sex (French: Le Deuxième Sexe) is a 1949 book by the French existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir, in which the author discusses the treatment of women throughout history. Beauvoir researched and wrote the book in about 14 months between 1946 and 1949. She published the work in two volumes: Facts and Myths (Les faits et les mythes), and Lived Experience (L’expérience vécue). Some chapters first appeared in the journal Les Temps modernes. One of Beauvoir’s best-known books, The Second Sex is often regarded as a major work of feminist philosophy, and as the starting inspiration point of second-wave feminism.

Excerpts

Woman? Very simple, say the fanciers of simple formulas: she is a womb, an ovary; she is a female-this word is sufficient to define her.
