RT Video/DVD DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 222148179 LA English T1 Lateline A1 French, Marilyn,, O'Brien, Kerry., Lewarne, Prue., Australian Broadcasting Corporation., YR 1992 AB As much as Germaine Greer and Betty Friedan, Marilyn French is an author whose work was instrumental in sparking the feminist movement which has changed the lives of millions of women worldwide. Her novel, The Womens Room, powerfully influenced the thinking of many people because it painted such a relentlessly bitter picture of the lives of many women brought up in the 50's and 60's. French is one of a number of American writers such as Gloria Steinem in arguing that a male backlash against feminism is already underway. Her latest treatise, The War Against Women, documents what the author claims is sustained warfare against women that has been waged for the past 4000 years. She discusses her new book with Kerry O'Brien.
