10. The Female Eunuch - Germaine Greer
If you’re looking for a relaxing subtle inroad to the feminist cause then Greer is not for you – but it’s exactly why she is so darn brilliant!
'The Female Eunuch
' can only be described as a 400 page slap round the face of patriarchy from every ‘difficult’ woman throughout history. Greer’s passionate, belligerent and rightfully angry work of words against male entitlement and almost blind submission of women is regarded as one of the most influential of our time.
It’s not without it’s shortcomings and things we outright don’t agree with but for every failure there are about 50 triumphs. We’re pretty certain this book will be your inspiration - the literary equivalent of a 1000 watt bulb being switched on in your head.
So we saved the best till last, just hurry up and read it!
