In later years, she was denounced by feminists for backpedaling on the original
message of The Female Eunuch. Greer was born in the Melbourne suburb of
Elwood and educated at the Star of the Sea Convent School at Gardenvale.
Although she soon rebelled against this narrow, restrictive world, she would
remain grateful that the nuns recognized her intellectual gifts and talent for
languages and encouraged her academic aspirations. The absence of a cultural
life at home was ...

The Female Eunuch can be usefully read within the framework of critical
ecological feminism because it is interested in linking the power structures of
patriarchy, colonialism, feminism, and capitalism to cultural and scientific
representations of Indigenous Australians and the land. Although the writing and
publication of The Female Eunuch precedes the use of the term 'ecofeminism' (
which is thought to have originated in the activism and writings of Françoise d'
Eaubonne, particularly ...

DZB Greer, Germaine 1939- Australian feminist author and English professor

The articles are typically interviews or profile pieces, with the inevitable question
about Greer's opinions on the legacy of the women's movement and/or the role
that The Female Eunuch played. Greer's location as an outsider to the Australian
women's movement does not stop her opinions being applied to, or taken as
representative of, the Australian women's movement. Nor does this idiosyncratic
position reduce The Female Eunuch's status as a paradigmatic feminist text for
the ...

Diana Trilling, in her long speech, had taken a sharp, critical knife to The Female
Eunuch. Germaine, in Diana's view, had discarded love, motherhood, the
nurturing instinct, even "the pleasures of a developing relation with the same
lover. . . . "For Miss Greer," said Diana, "sex is not sex unless it is only sex." And
since, at one point, Germaine had asserted, in answer to a vaguely
psychoanalytic question, that she did not resemble her mother, Diana also
demanded to know: "If women ...

the seductive style of The Female Eunuch and its “problematic” content. She
acknowledges that the book contains insights that are “sharp, potent and
motivating” and calls Greer's writing “bawdy, witty, provocative” and “
magnificently accessible,” but she claims that The Female Eunuch's influence on
the women's movement “was in reverse relation to the book's popular impact.”
