Not the Second Sex A book of Women

Author Name: J. M. Kumar | Format: Paperback | Genre : Biographies & Autobiographies | Other Details

Not the Second Sex is about some of the women I had met around the world in the last thirty years. These women had instilled a firm belief in me that women are in fact not the second sex and that a man appears to be superior only because they allow him to be so.


“All that investment is only for removing the dress and become naked at the end of the day in front of a man,” Krishna said to Laila, a gorgeous fashion model in Mumbai, when she was bolstering about the efforts she had to take to dress and make up.


“Given a choice, a woman will always choose a man with whom she would be happy rather than comfortable. A man never understands that.”


“Author Rebecca West said, ‘I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat.”


Maitreyi asked Yajnavalkya her husband, the great intellect and renowned sage, “If you leave me with all your wealth to seek the Brahman, what shall I do with that by which I cannot become an immortal?.”
