This book is written for the sole purpose of criticizing everything, while rarely offering viable alternatives. It's a scholarly type of book, full of jargon that might be discouraging for some people. However, there is some excellent analysis of women's issues which are still relevant in 21st century, even though the book was written 40 years ago. Greer doesn't just blame everything on patriarchy, she is much more critical of the average women, lambasting their feminine virtues, exhorting them to claim their own sexuality and fully take advantage of the opportunities given to them.
