First UK printing. This is one of the defining works of the second wave of feminism and introduced Germaine Greer as a serious and controversial figure. As stated in an ink note to the top of the press release, "Mavis, she sounds interesting, if militant…" The TLS, dated 7th February 1982, is written to the author Mary Ingham, who was working on the second edition of her 1981 book on feminism Now We Are Thirty and had clearly asked for biographical clarification: "It would probably create a confusing cross-reference in the Fontana Dictionary of Modern Thought, if you were to say that I was influenced in my intellectual development by the Sydney Libertarians, who are among the many grievous omissions in the F.D. of M.T. along with De Beauvoir, Knox, the Oxford Movement, Von Reit and so forth. I should prefer that these were rectified before my name appeared in the volume."
