"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 At times funny, at times ferocious, and at times frustrating, "The Female Eunuch" remains an important historical document, one which makes palpable both the passion and the venom that brought Feminism's second wave to life."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" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
