Simone de Beauvoir published «The Second Sex» for the first time in the famous French publishing house Gallimard in 1949. Since then, it is a reference book to think the emancipation of women from philosophy. Montage made from an image from Wikimedia commons with CC BY-SA 4.0 license.

«Not every female human being is necessarily a woman.» Did Simone de Beauvoir say that? As early as 1949? Are you telling me that the second wave of feminism starts like that? Incredible as it may seem, it does. These are the words of Simone de Beauvoir in the introduction to The Second Sex, the Parisian’s masterpiece. We then delve into the adventure that Beauvoir set out on in post-war Europe: how we women can free ourselves from imposed determinism.

For this reason, she also makes an analysis based on historical materialism, since the situation of women depends on the economic structure of their society and this, in turn, on the levels of technical evolution. Beauvoir refers to Engels’ The Origin of the Family, Private Property and the State and agrees with him when she says that private property removed women to a second place in the household, which was no longer seen as productive. However, he says that Engels remains on the surface, since he does not develop either why the transition to property takes place or why it was associated with man from the first moment.

-And at the national level? -This is a relevant country, but feminism cannot leave the global view. It is the same with environmentalism. We cannot worry only about the eucalyptus forest and leave the Amazon. Ecological policies need international determinations. Feminists, too.

-No, Irene Montero has done several things, but we have never seen her as a feminist. We don’t even know if she has studied it. One cannot declare oneself a feminist, just as one cannot declare oneself blind or mute. It is not a declarative function. Feminism is an agenda, and if you don’t share it, you are not a feminist.

-Is the discourse of the radical right a counterattack? -What most converts to the extreme right are the queer martianades. There are people who, when they see an excess, recognize it, but instead of tempering themselves, they go too far. That’s how it is.

From the work of different thinkers ranging from the 17th century to the present day, we propose, taking advantage of the loopholes opened by the new LOMLOE, a change of educational paradigm from the point of view of active inclusion.

In this blog, we will try to understand the events of the present by traversing -sometimes against the tide- the history of philosophy, with the aim of exposing the mechanisms used by power to prevent any kind of change or alternative in society. But also to produce what Deleuze called lines of flight, concrete movements of both the present and the past that, escaping from the space of influence of power, trace paths towards other possible worlds.

Geni Gómez and Bertha Massiel Sánchez denounce the situation of political prisoners in Nicaragua, of exiles and of a feminist movement condemned to clandestinity. They call for the electoral result of November 7 not to be legitimized.

In Latin America, as in Europe, the strong and exclusive androcentric orientation of philosophy in the development of its central traditions has led to a tense, disturbing and deeply asymmetrical relationship with women.

Philosophy appears as a continuous «male monologue» in which women can hardly intervene. This book discusses this «difficult relationship» between women and philosophy with the aim of showing the injustice of this process. To this end, the first part of the book analyzes the image of women that has been maintained and propagated by important Latin American philosophers, especially in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
