Publisher's Summary

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.

already own the book

I had to get the audible. listening at 1.35x speed worked out great.

I'm a depressed sahm currently and this was the medicine I needed. It's so easy to get delusional lost, and lonely in marriage. This book reminded me I shouldn't have married. But I am so I'll tough it out the feminist way even if this ends in divorce. I love this book and will have my daughters read it. It's a gem. Truly inspirational.

Every woman should listen to this

Still incredibly relevant to women in 2017. Beautifully read. A moving call for women to reexamine their place in society.

Amazing

Highly thought-provoking. Saddening ti think how little progress has been made globally on women's rights since the book's publication. This is essential reading for men and women. I found the narration excellent.

A bit dry

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This is not a good book to follow Catlin Moran's great book.. A little too historic for me.

Any additional comments?

Doing a research project? This might be for you!

great book, great narration

loved it, wished I hadn't waited till my 30s to finally listen to it. Germain is a great narrator, really didn't expect it to be so funny and entertaining!
