Living her own flamboyant fusion of feminism and sexual freedom with tumultuous results, Germaine Greer put theory into practice. When she contrasted this version of feminism with conventional mores in The Female Eunuch, highlighting the extent to which women were the constructs and handmaidens of men, the shock of recognition it produced was profound.
The women of an entire generation were compelled to reconsider their lives, their partners, their families, their work, their whole way of being. Later characterizations of Greer as a "bad" feminist or an "anti-feminist" miss the point. Germaine Greer: Untamed Shrew portrays an exceptionally talented, spirited, gutsy woman at odds with the family and era into which she was born, who went on to have a major, if ambiguous, impact on women in her time.
Since then, Greer has continually challenged feminist and sexual orthodoxies, confounding the women's movement and generating headlines for more than three decades. Janet Street-Porter. John Rentoul.
