Immanence/Existentialism/Beauvoir: To exist in immanence means to be subject to a limitation of freedom, to the curtailment of development possibilities and repression of all kinds, whether they are imposed or whether they are consciously or unconsciously chosen. Above all, it means missing the meaning of existence, for "there is no other justification for present existence than its extension into an infinitely open future" (1).
Gender roles/Femininity/Beauvoir: This is now the specific "drama of women": On the one hand, it should "solidify into an object and be condemned to immanence" (2) and yet, as a subject, it is essentially called upon to assert itself and transgress itself.
