Simone de Beauvoir on Emancipation - Dictionary of Arguments

Brocker I 306
Emancipation/Beauvoir: How could a way out of the epochal mutual entanglement of the sexes into an improper existence look like? ((s) See Gender Roles/Beauvoir, Subject-Object-Problem/Beauvoir).
Beauvoir is not convinced of a concept of "equality in difference" (1), since this only threatens to conceal the despotism of men and the cowardice of women. For them, women are the ones who have to change and change their situation (2). In order to realize themselves as autonomous and active subjects in the world, it is indispensable that they secure their economic independence through work.
Solution/Beauvoir: a liberation of both sexes (3). Instead of a demigod and his art object "woman", comrades, friends and partners meet who "recognize each other as equals and live the erotic drama in friendship" (4).
