Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Elizabeth Wurtzel
“This book changed my life. Germaine Greer is brave and crazy, serious and fun, sharp and sexy.”
Newsweek
“A dazzling combination of erudition, eccentricity, and eroticism.”
New York Times Book Review
“Brilliantly written, quirky and sensible, full of bile and insight.”
Booknews
A new edition of the seminal feminist treatise that launched Greer's writing career. She calls it part of the second feminist wave<-->of ungenteel middle-class women calling for revolution as opposed to the earlier genteel middle-class ladies clamoring for reform. The first edition was published by MacGibbon and Kee in Britain in 1970. After three decades, it survives without either an index or a mention in . Former editor Jennifer Baumgardner contributes an introduction putting it in current context. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
