ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL AND BESTSELLING NOVELS OF THE MODERN FEMINIST MOVEMENT

‘It was about the need to change things from top to bottom; it was a declaration of independence’ OBSERVER

‘The first and last international bestseller of the women’s movement’ GUARDIAN

‘They said this book would change lives – and it certainly changed mine’ JENNI MURRAY, BBC RADIO 4

A landmark in feminist literature, The Women’s Room is a biting social commentary of a world gone silently haywire. Written in the 1970s but with profound resonance today, this is a modern allegory that offers piercing insight into the social norms accepted blindly and revered so completely.

It follows the transformation of Mira Ward and her circle as the women’s movement begins to have an impact on their lives. A biting social commentary on an emotional world gone silently haywire, The Women’s Room is a modern classic that offers piercing insight into the social norms accepted so blindly and revered so completely. Marilyn French questions those accepted norms and poignantly portrays the hopeful believers looking for new truths.
