On May 19, 2018, Meghan Markle married Prince Harry in a widely publicized and celebrated ceremony. Furthermore, after the exchange of vows, many reported on how the couple appeared totally in love during the romantic proceedings. But it seems that not everybody is convinced that their marriage is destined to last. Certainly, renowned feminist Germaine Greer has had a few choice words to say about the new Duchess of Sussex.
Australia-born writer Germaine Greer shot into the spotlight in 1970 with the publication of her first book, The Female Eunuch. As the title suggests, the idea behind the text is that women have been systematically oppressed by society and therefore left, for want of a better word, castrated.
At one point in the book, for instance, Greer asserts that “women have very little idea of how much men hate them.” She further argues that women have been altogether too nice to admit that men are the main cause of their oppression. Unsurprisingly, then, The Female Eunuch was a controversial book upon release.
