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.

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!
