Name: Germaine Greer                                                               
Born: 29 January 1939 (age 69)                                                     
Germaine Greer (born 29 January 1939) is an Australian writer, journalist and     
scholar of early modern English literature, widely regarded as one of the most     
significant feminist voices of the 20th century.                                   
Greer's ideas have created controversy ever since her ground-breaking The Female   
Eunuch became an international best-seller in 1970, turning her overnight into a   
household name and bringing her both adulation and criticism. She is also the     
author of Sex and Destiny: The Politics of Human Fertility (1984); and The         
Change: Women, Ageing and the Menopause (1991), and most recently Shakespeare's   
Wife (2007).
