    (January 9, 1908-April 14, 1986)
    Full name was Simone Lucie-Ernestine-Marie-Bertrand de Beauvoir
    Wrote 'The Second Sex,' 'All Men are Mortal,' 'The Mandarins,' 'Adieux: A Farewell to Jean-Paul Sartre'
    She and her mother had a falling out when she became an atheist as a teenager.
    'The Mandarins' was banned by the Catholic Church.
    In 'The Second Sex,' she said 'A woman is not born, she is made,' thereby denying genetics and taking a rather extreme view on gender.
    Towards the end of her life, she drank too much and took amphetamines.
    She graduated from the Sorbonne.
    At twenty-one, she met Jean-Paul Sartre, and they became life long friends and lovers.
    She and Jean-Paul Sartre saw no need to marry and had two rules for their relationship: They were both allowed to fall in love with or have sex with anyone else they wanted, and they were always completely honest, never withholding anything from the other.
    She and Jean-Paul Sartre had at least one menage a tois with Olga Kosakiewicz.
    When Jean-Paul Sartre died, she said, 'My death will not bring us together again. This is how things are. It is in itself splendid that we were able to live our lives in harmony for so long.'
    Her writing was far more lucid than Jean-Paul Sartre's.
    She won the Prix Goncourt and the Jerusalem Prize for Leaders.
    She rejected the title of existentialist.
    'The Second Sex' is a landmark in the feminist philosophy.
    She was a social reformer who fought for the rights of women, the elderly, and factory workers, in addition to protesting France's occupation of Algeria and the Vietnam War.
