Some more linky links. Lots of feminist bloggers and writers have also defended Greer in wake of Nowra’s irritating piece in The Monthly.
* Helen Razer sums up our anger perfectly, I think: Louis Nowra needs a good vajazzling.
* Maggie Alderson writes about how important The Female Eunuch by Germaine Greer was to her.
* Felix of the amazing adventures of felix and limpy writes: That time of the month?
* Caroline Overington in The Australian writes, Loved or hated, but still Germaine
* And Germaine Greer herself writes in The Age: Change is a feminist issue.
Every new generation of women struggles to define itself. Very few young women want to turn into their mother, and even fewer want to be their grandmother. There is no need for today’s women to march to a 40-year-old feminist drum.
Amid the seeming chaos of intergenerational conflict new lifestyles and family forms are coalescing. The feminist revolution has not failed. It has yet to begin. Its ground troops are fast developing the skills and muscle that will be necessary if we are to vanquish corporate power and rescue our small planet for humanity.
Thank you, Germaine! 🙂
