9780070243729: The Female Eunuch

Available in audio for the first time since its publication in 1970, and narrated by the author, Germaine Greer.

A worldwide best seller, The Female Eunuch is a landmark book in the history of the women's movement and a ground-breaking feminist tract. Drawing from history, literature, and popular culture—past and present—Germaine Greer's searing examination of women's oppression is both an important social commentary and a passionately argued polemical masterpiece. This is one of the most famous, most widely read books on feminism ever written.

From the Inside Flap:

Praise for THE FEMALE EUNUCH by Germaine Greer

"Like a woman, this book gets better with age. Greer's punchy prose and all-too-true observations motivate you to go out and do something to liberate yourself-and other women." -Leora Tanenbaum, author of "Slut! Growing Up Female With a Bad Reputation"

"In this classic text, Germaine Greer establishes herself as the bastard brainchild of Simone deBeauvoir and Valerie Solanis; a free-loving feminist freak and angry intellectual blazing the trail for modern day thinkers like Camille Paglia and Elizabeth Wurtzel; a pro-sex feminist before the term was invented. At times funny, at times ferocious, and at times frustrating, "The Female Eunuch" remains an important historical document, one which makes palpable both the passion and the venom that brought Feminism's second wave to life." -Debbie Stoller, co-founder of "Bust" magazine and co-editor of "The Bust Guide to the New Girl Order"

"This book changed my life. Germaine Greer is brave and crazy, serious and fun, sharp and sexy. The suffragettes may have invented modern-day feminism half a century before, but Germaine Greer made it hot." -Elizabeth Wurtzel, author of "Bitch: In Praise of Difficult Women" and "Prozac Nation"
