Simone de Beauvoir and her work have provided something of a Rorschach test for feminist theory, with different generations and genres of feminism each projecting their own preoccupations upon her. First hailed as "Mother of Us All" and as the author ofthe so-called Bible of Second Wave feminism, she was mainly treated in the 1970s as an icon or held up as an ideal. But although in the 1970s many feminists found personal inspiration in The Second Sex as well as in Beauvoir's life, relatively few engaged seriously with the book as a major theoretical work.

Fredrika Scarth (a feminist) reads Simone de Beauvoir's "The Second Sex" to be saying, "Neither men nor women live their bodies authentically under patriarchy. Mary Daly, a radical feminist writer, wrote, "Males and males only are the originators, planners, controllers, and legitimators of patriarchy. Carole Pateman, another feminist, writes, "The patriarchal construction of the difference between masculinity and femininity is the political difference between freedom and subjection.

Simone Lucie Ernestine Marie Bertrand de Beauvoir (UK: /də ˈboʊvwɑːr/, US: /də boʊˈvwɑːr/, French: (listen); 9 January 1908 – 14 April 1986) was a French writer, intellectual, existentialist philosopher, political activist, feminist and social theorist. Though she did not consider herself a philosopher, she had a significant influence on both. Though she did not consider herself a philosopher, she had a significant influence on both feminist existentialism and feminist theory.

Simone de Beauvoir is one of these belatedly acknowledged philosophers. It is impossible to know where Simone de Beauvoir’s thinking would have gone had she been spared the cold, the hunger and the fear of living in Nazi occupied Paris. Identifying herself as an author rather than as a philosopher and calling herself the midwife of Sartre’s existential ethics rather than a thinker in her own right, Beauvoir’s place in philosophy had to be won against her word. That place is now uncontested. What we do know is that coming face to face with forces of injustice beyond her control, the questions of evil and the Other took on new urgency.

In The Other Within, Fredrika Scarth builds upon the recent studies that have surfaced as part of the Simone de Beauvoir renaissance to offer a reading of The Second Sex as an ethical text. Scarth provides us with a unique and enlightening study of Beauvoir's writing on the female body, and in particular on maternity as an important piece of Beauvoir's writing. Unlike other feminist scholars who find in Beauovir's writing a horror and repudiation of mother hood, Scarth argues that Beauvoir's writing on maternity can open up new possibilities of embodied subjectivity and agency, and can found a truly ethical relationship with the other.
