The Female Eunuch
“Like a woman, this book gets better with age. Greer’s punchy prose and all-too-true observations motivate you to go out and do something to liberate yourself-and other women.” — Leora Tanenbaum, author of Slut! Growing Up Female with a Bad Reputation
A ground-breaking, worldwide bestselling study of women’s oppression that is at once an important social commentary, a passionately argued masterpiece of polemic, and a feminist classic.
The publication of Germaine Greer’s The Female Eunuch in 1970 was a landmark event, raising eyebrows and ire while creating a shock wave of recognition in women around the world with its steadfast assertion that sexual liberation is the key to women's liberation. Today, Greer's searing examination of the oppression of women in contemporary society is both an important historical record of where we've been and a shockingly relevant treatise on what still remains to be achieved.
