Available alongside five other Modern Classics first published by Flamingo in the 1970s: a beautiful new cover re-issue of the ground-breaking, bestselling feminist classic
A worldwide bestseller, translated into many 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.

‘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
