The Female Eunuch by Germaine Greer
  

Good Housekeeping's view...

June 2010 Good Housekeeping selection.

On My Bookshelf by Isabel Allende...

The Female Eunuch by Germaine Greer gave me the language to express the anger I had as a young woman living in a patriarchy. Feminism has marked my life for the better, and it all started with this book.

What is Good Housekeeping

Synopsis

The Female Eunuch by Germaine Greer

A new cover re-issue of the ground-breaking, worldwide bestselling feminist tract. 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.

'A dazzling combination of erudition, eccentricity and eroticism.'
Newsweek

'Intelligent, funny and beautifully written'
Vogue

'Germaine Greer in THE FEMALE EUNUCH converted me to Women's Lib, as much by her bawdy sense of humour as by the bite of her polemic'
Kenneth Tynan, Observer

'A fine, continuous flow of angry power!terrific polemical force'
Listener
