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.
"Every woman should listen to this"
Victoria Coren Mitchell interviews Dawn French, Olivia Colman, Sarah Millican and Germaine Greer in this new four-part BBC Radio 4 series. Using cars as a 'vehicle' for sharing memories, Victoria and guests take a comic look at life, love, sex, work, childhood, adulthood and adventure. At the heart of the show is an exploration of what cars symbolise to women today, including freedom, power, refuge, novelty and familiarity.
In the third Quarterly Essay of 2003, Germaine Greer suggests that embracing Aboriginality is the only way Australia can fully imagine itself as a nation. In this sweeping and magisterial work, she looks at the interdependence of black and white and suggests not how the Aborigine question may be settled, but rather how a sense of being Aboriginal might save the soul of Australia. Touching on everything from Henry Lawson to multiculturalism, Greer argues that Australia must enter the Aboriginal "web of dreams".
