Reviews

  • "Into the pale politeness of post-feminism, Greer has thrown a polemical bomb . . . Greer's acid anger comes as a surprising reminder of what the point of a feminist book was meant to be. It is funny, unforgiving, unapologetic, unappeasing."

    Decca Aitkenhead, Guardian
  • "Don't underestimate this book. Its power, like that of The Female Eunuch, lies in the virtuosity and wit of its questions. Its capacity will force us to stop and think."

    Lisa Jardine, Observer
  • "Three cheers for Greer . . . She makes every other feminist writer look like pallid fast food, devoid of vitamins and roughage."

    Lesley Garner, Evening Standard
  • "This is a serious book which it is impossible to be neutral about."

    Gemma Hussey, Irish Independent
  • "Reading The Whole Woman has been a mega-vitamin shot. I feel rearmed, revitalised."
