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.

About the Author

Germaine Greer gained her PhD from the University of Cambridge in 1967 with a thesis on Shakespeare's Early Comedies and has taught Shakespeare at universities in Australia, Britain and the US. In 1986 she was invited to contribute the volume of Shakespeare to the prestigious Past Masters series. In 1989 she set up her own publishing imprint, Stump Cross Books, and went on to publish scholarly editions of Katherine Philips, Anne Wharton and Anne Finch, Countess of Winchilsea. She lives on three acres by a motorway exit in North-west Essex, with two dogs, thirteen geese and a fluctuating number of doves.
Industry Reviews
'A dazzling tract, erudite, outrageous, funny.' Cosmopolitan 'Brilliantly written, quirky and sensible, full of bile and insight...The best feminist book so far' New York Times '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
