Abstract

The quotation in the title has been attributed as Robyn Morgan's response to Germaine Greer's television debate with Norman Mailer. This paper will explore Germaine Greer's turbulent relationship with the mainstream press both in Australia and abroad and will attempt to determine whether the flamboyant Dr Greer added “a much needed patina of glamour” to the movement or merely used feminism as yet another way to cash in on the counter-culture. It demonstrates the ability of the media to manipulate a feminism not grounded in an analysis of male power.
