‘A fine, continuous flow of angry power…terrific polemical force’ Listener
From the Back Cover
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.
"The best feminist book so far . . . a book that knows the distinction between the self and the other, a book that combines the best of masculinity and femininity."
' New York Times'
" The liveliest, most sensible and best book yet on Women's Lib. It has an impressive scholarly thread, but its polemical dash and lusty jokes are constantly entertaining. Required reading."
"An exhilarating, polemical, witty book."
"A dazzling combination of erudition, eccentricity and eroticism"
"brilliantly written, quirky and sensible, full of bile and insight"
