The Female Eunuch
'The Female Eunuch retains that power of transformation; it asserts the possibility of creativity within female experience' Guardian
A worldwide bestseller, translated into over twelve languages, The Female Eunuch is a landmark in the history of the women's movement.
Drawing liberally from history, literature and popular culture, past and present, Germaine Greer's searing examination of women's oppression is at once an important social commentary and a passionately argued masterpiece of polemic.
Probably the most famous, most widely read book on feminism ever.

About Germaine Greer
A former Professor of English at Warwick, Greer became a household name when she published The Female Eunuch, attracting praise and opprobrium in more or less equal measure.
She has since highlighted injustice against women in Asia and Africa, and managed an area of rainforest in her native Australia. On a raft of contentious issues, she takes a refreshingly practical view where others mire themselves in political correctness.
