Feminism and its Challenges in the 21st Century 

Are women still “the second sex”?
Feminism and its Challenges in the 21st Century 

Although Simone de Beauvoir’s foundational book entitled The Second Sex was first published in 1949, many of the questions she explored then remain relevant today: what defines gender? Is society truly instrumental at defining disparity among the genders or is it an in-born condition? What is the meaning of feminism today? What has been done and what remains to be done? 

These are some of the points we will try to articulate in our discussion.

Explore this topic with Maria Caporale, Ph.D.  director of the Women’s and Gender Studies Program at The University of Scranton.
