The second sex

Simone de Beauvoir'ın 1953'te kaleme aldığı The Second Sex'in "Social Life" bölümünden iki alıntıyla güne mana katmalı.

"A woman of elegance, on the contrary, can if need be seek sensous or aesthetic pleasure in her toilette, but she will certainly keep it appropriate to her appearance; the color of her gown will favor her complexion, its cut will emphasize or improve her figure. What she treasures is herself adorned, and not the objects that adorn her." 

"If the toilette has so much importance for many women, it is because in illusion it enables them to remold the outer world and their inner selves simultaneously."
