Simone Beauvoir's "The Second Sex" is contradictory when it comes to her notion on nomadic tribes and

class society.

In Chapter 3, She criticizes Engele's The Origin Of Family and his argument that the root of women's oppression is capitalism and how before the class society, women were the head of the tribe. She criticizes that without a clear argument. However, In chapter 2 and 3 of History, she talks about how after men became farms and owned the land, women's role and rights became diminished- aka, confirming Engle 's argument. I wanna know why she opposes Engele ? And why she contradicts herself
