EL SEGUNDO SEXO. Simone de Beauvoir. El Segundo Sexo no sólo ha nutrido a todo el feminismo que se ha hecho en la segunda mitad del siglo, sino que es el ensayo feminista más importante de la centuria. Todo lo que se ha escrito después en el campo de la teoría feminista ha tenido que contar con esta obra, bien para continuarla en sus planteamientos y seguir desarrollándolos, bien para criticarlos oponiéndose a ellos.

"Untamed: The Wildest Woman in America and the Fight for Cumberland Island" ~ a heart-felt book by local NC writer Will Harlan ... about the incredible Carol Ruckdeschel; a noted biologist and environmentalist who has spent her life fighting for the preservation of Georgia's wild & wonderful barrier island. Described by detractors as the "wicked witch of the wilderness," she is more a cross between Henry David Thoreau and Jane Goodall, with an amazingly picturesque life-story.
