did not like it

When I picked this book up in Darwin I did so because I thought it had an interesting title and I thought it was some sort of fiction. I did recognise the name Germaine Greer, but I couldn't remember where I had it from. The book is a very feminist non-fiction book.

I struggled getting through this book. It was just so boring. The way it was written was boring and the subject was outdated. I'm sure it was a big hit and kind of helpful to the women liberation in the 70's, and parts of it was interesting just as a way to find out what it was like back then, but for me today it was a bit boring. I'm all for feminism, but this was over the top, which I guess it needed to be back then. And it is strange to think about that women had so few rights just 30-40 years ago.
