The female eunuch by Germaine Greer( Book )

208 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 4,252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Germaine Greer takes aim at the subject of women: their cultural history, their psychological development, and their relationship to men. And what she puts forward as her central thesis is the original and provocative idea that as wives, employees, mothers, and lovers, women are not only still in bondage to men, but are deformed by them--made into eunuchs. It is not that Greer is against men (she likes them very much), or that she thinks women should take to violent action to secure their rights, but rather that every woman must come to know herself: her body and her mind. Women must also learn, she argues, their own histories and must learn to share their experiences with one another until they understand, identify, and explicitly come to terms with the many psychological techniques of domination in and out of the home.--From publisher description
The change : women, aging, and the menopause by Germaine Greer( Book )

58 editions published between 1991 and 1996 in 11 languages and held by 2,718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

She delves into the full range of emotional and physical changes in the menopausal woman and proposes a new "art" of aging based on each woman's acceptance of her own experience and her transformed needs and desires. The deeply impassioned ideas Germaine Greer puts forth sound a rallying cry against the cultural and sexual stereotypes that have long hampered the lives of menopausal and aging women. With a profound fierceness of purpose, she encourages women to embrace the freedoms inherent in the change and to forge the serenity and power that can be its most permanent consequences. Powerful and provocative, The Change demands alienation and reaction. It is a landmark book

The whole woman by Germaine Greer( Book )

63 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 2,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thirty years after The Female Eunuch galvanized the women's liberation movement, Germaine Greer launches a fiery sequel assessing the state of womanhood and proclaiming that the time has come to get angry again. Greer argues that women have come a long way in the past three decades, but that innumerable forms of insidious discrimination and exploitation persist in every area of lifefrom the care of the body to the care of the household, from the workplace to the marketplace. She startles us with her demonstration that the oft-repeated claim that "women can have it all" is merely a pacifying illusion - that things are getting worse, and that action is necessary now

The Cambridge guide to women's writing in English by Lorna Sage( Book )

23 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 1,256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Guide aims to consolidate and epitomise the re-reading of women's writing that has gone on in the last twenty-five years. This is an opportunity for stock-taking - a timely project, when so much writing has been rediscovered, reclaimed and republished." "There are entries on writers, on individual texts, and on general terms, genres and movements, all printed in a single alphabetical sequence. The earliest written documents in medieval English (the visionary writings of Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe) are covered in an historical - and geographical - sweep that takes us up to the present day." "The book reflects the spread of literacy, the history of colonisation and the development of post-colonial cultures using and changing the English language. The entries are written by contributors from all the countries covered."--Jacket

Slip-shod sibyls : recognition, rejection and the woman poet by Germaine Greer( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The term 'slip-shod sibyls' is adapted from a gibe of Alexander Pope. It encapsulates the common contempt for the half-educated women who dared to expose themselves in the literary market-place, convinced that they were born poets." "In this collection Germaine Greer argues that the problem is not that women who wrote poetry in English before 1900 were ignored but that, when most women were unable to express themselves in written form at all, and only a tiny minority of them dared to write in metre, the female poet was given undue attention, flattered and exploited only to be rejected and humiliated in her own lifetime and forgotten by posterity." "She argues that as much as we yearn to have women's poetry seriously studied in schools and universities, what has come down to us is not worthy of inclusion in the canon, for all kinds of reasons. In many cases the texts are inauthentic and cannot be relied upon to represent women's work or women's sensibility. In virtually all cases the poetry is intensely derivative and cannot be evaluated by readers who are unfamiliar with the poets' models."--Jacket
The boy by Germaine Greer( Book )

24 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in 7 languages and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With over two hundred images drawn from the whole history of Western art, illustrating the vicissitudes of the beautiful male, as toy boy, virgin soldier, naked martyr or winged genius, angel or seducer, narcissist or worshipper, we are invited to appreciate boys in all their sensuality, spontaneity and vulnerability. In exploring the iconic ideal of the beautiful boy, whether a sculpture of Cupid or David, a painting by Caravaggio or Van Dyck, or a photograph by Nan Goldin or Sally Mann, Germaine Greer demolishes one of the last great Western taboos."--BOOK JACKET

11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Race relations are one of the most fraught issues in the world. Almost everywhere in the world where different races rub against each other there is racism and friction. The problem is most acute with displaced indigenous people. White Australia with the history of its terrible treatment of the Aborigines is an extreme case study. In this essay, Germaine Greer shows how it could, should and must be different. The problem is not the Aborigines but the ʻsettler societyʼ and what it has done to the country. She shows how Australians must embrace their aboriginality
