Greer extends the argument presented in "The Female Eunuch," that women no longer need to be willing to accept a cramped and stereotyped role in a masculine world into the world of women painters. The book focuses on the world of women painters to show how the imposition of traditional social constraints has robbed women in particular, and the world at large, of the chance of excellence. It is an answer to the question: If men and women are equally capable of genius, why has there been no female Leonardo, no Titian, no Poussin? New York: Farrar Straus Giroux, 1979, early printing. 7"x9.75" tall. 373 pp. Indexed with Notes.
