[Press & Publications] World-renowned Author at University [English]



March 2000

No 43

Dr Germaine Greer, the prominent and controversial feminist author, is to visit the University of Leicester on 10 March, to give a talk on her most recent book, The Whole Woman, in what is the only such occasion outside London this year.

Organised in conjunction with Waterstones Bookshop, Dr Greer's discussion is designed to mark the publication in paperback of The Whole Woman and to celebrate World Book Day.

Lecturer in the Department of English, Dr Emma Parker, said: "The year 2000 marks thirty years since the publication of Dr Greer's earlier and seminal work The Female Eunuch and The Whole Woman seeks to examine what has changed for women in that time - for better or worse.

"This public discussion is a rare opportunity to listen to one of the leading and most well respected academic voices on women's issues."

Held in the New Building, University of Leicester, Dr Greer will further illuminate the many and sometimes controversial issues which define the latter-day 'battle of the sexes.'

The lecture, which is full to capacity, will start at 7pm in Lecture Theatre 1, New Building, University of Leicester.
