Abstract:

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.
