The Female Eunuch – Germaine Greer

female-eunuchREAD FOR BOOKCLUB

Chosen by Rachel

A 1970s book that became an important text in the feminist movement, which suggests the traditional, consumerist, nuclear family represses women sexually, and this devitalises them, rendering them eunuchs.

✔ “Not our usual kind of bookclub read, but one that’s always been on the bucket list. Thought-provoking and full of ideas, but perhaps not as shocking as it once was.” – Rachel

✔ “And I thought” – Jo

✔ “And from me” – Suzy

✔ “This book” – Sophia
