Publisher's Summary

The 50th Anniversary edition of the ground-breaking, worldwide best-selling feminist tract. 

A worldwide best seller, translated into more than 12 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.

Accessible, empowering and relevant

I have failed to read this since my university days. I missed out. Greer makes excellent, balanced points supported by evidence of the time and inspires in doing so. It is a sad reflection on society that I only found this dated in limited respects and times have not changed as much as perhaps they could have. that said, Greer covers the age of the book and its continued relevance in the Forward to this, the 50th anniversary edition. a must read for anyone interested in equality of people.

Transphobic

To my disgust, I found the book to be transphobic, bizarre, and out of touch. Not helpful to any progressive cause. I regret buying the book and will avoid this author in future.
