A question of balance

”Representation of the world, like the world itself, is the work of men; they describe it from their own point of view, which they confuse with absolute truth.” Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex
Judith Leyster, Self-Portrait, c. 1630
Simone de Beauvoir

When she spoke of the world and its representation as being the work of men, Simone de Beauvoir intended this quite literally. She was not using the term ‘men’ in any generic sense; as a synonym for humankind, as was common practice until feminist writers such as de Beauvoir prompted more thoughtful use of language. The claim is that world we know has been created by men. And that we know that world as it is represented by men in art and culture and politics and science and all else.
