Translators Constance Borde and Sheila Malovany-Chevalier present a new version of de Beauvoir's classic on the place of women in society The Second Sex. When the book first appeared in English 60 years ago, it was missing 15 percent of its original text. Borde and Malovany-Chevalier have rectified that oversight. They will discuss the book's continuing relevance. Tuesday, Sept. 7, at 7 p.m. Politics and Prose, 5015 Connecticut Ave. NW. Call 202-364-1919 or visit
