The freedom I pleaded for...was freedom to be a person, with dignity, integrity, nobility, passion, pride.

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 written, The Female Eunuch remains one of the most important publications of the second wave feminist movement.

“Really interesting”

Interesting and thought provoking with some great use of humour.
