About the Author:

Germaine Greer is a writer, academic, and broadcaster whose most famous book, The Female Eunuch, was first published in 1970 and became one of the most widely read books of the baby-boom generation. Her many subsequent books include works on women writers and painters; the politics of fertility and aging; and The Whole Woman (1999), which takes stock of the current situation of the feminist movement.
