A charismatic woman of formidable intellect, ferocious combative spirit, and
provocative language, she became one of the key polemicists of the women's
movement. In later years, she was denounced by feminists for backpedaling on
the original message of The Female Eunuch. Greer was born in the Melbourne
suburb of Elwood and educated at the Star of the Sea Convent School at
Gardenvale. Although she soon rebelled against this narrow, restrictive world,
she would remain ...

The Female Eunuch can be usefully read within the framework of critical
ecological feminism because it is interested in linking the power structures of
patriarchy, colonialism, feminism, and capitalism to cultural and scientific
representations of Indigenous Australians and the land. Although the writing and
publication of The Female Eunuch precedes the use of the term 'ecofeminism' (
which is thought to have originated in the activism and writings of Françoise d'
Eaubonne, particularly ...

The articles are typically interviews or profile pieces, with the inevitable question
about Greer's opinions on the legacy of the women's movement and/or the role
that The Female Eunuch played. Greer's location as an outsider to the Australian
women's movement does not stop her opinions being applied to, or taken as
representative of, the Australian women's movement. Nor does this idiosyncratic
position reduce The Female Eunuch's status as a paradigmatic feminist text for
the ...

As a secret concavity, Mary Daly and Phyllis Chesler remind us, the vagina
becomes a spittoon or a sewer. In Germaine Greer's view, the extreme
expression of men's fixation and disgust with feminine genitalia is the
clitoridectomy. For Phyllis Chesler, the culmination was the bloody episode of the

proof of the success of the socialization of the "female eunuch" is women's
internalization of this masculine hate ...
