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.

The Female Eunuch Synopsis

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.
