Abstract:

"In The Other Within, Fredrika Scarth offers a reading of The Second Sex as an ethical text, driven by Beauvoir's preoccupation with what possibilities have been closed off to women by patriarchal structures, oppression, and inequality. Scarth provides a unique and enlightening view of Beauvoir's writing on the female body, particularly on maternity. Unlike other feminist scholars who find in Beauvoir's writing a repudiation of motherhood, Scarth argues that Beauvoir's writing on maternity can open up new possibilities of embodied subjectivity and agency, grounding an authentic ethical relationship with the other."--Jacket.
