Overview

“The best feminist book so far . . . A book with personality, 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

A ground-breaking, worldwide bestselling study of women’s oppression that is at once an important social commentary and 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.
