A new cover re-issue of the ground-breaking, worldwide bestselling feminist tract. 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.

As one librarian to another - please tell me how you rate this book TRAVEL (yes it is in big print, in red and on the spine)? This was one of the most important books to come out of the 2nd wave of feminism in the 1970s. For goodness sake - TRAVEL? Maybe the journey Germaine Greer made towards a new way of seeing women in society? Maybe the journey the reader was making following her thinking? One copy? Just one copy for the whole of this enormous library system? Just one copy for a book that changed the way we thought, that changed the way women operated in society? Phew.
