She was known for her 1949 treatise ''The Second Sex'', a detailed analysis of women's oppression and a foundational tract of contemporary feminism; and for her novels, including ''She Came to Stay'' and ''The Mandarins''. She was also known for her open, lifelong relationship with French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre. Provided by Wikipedia
