The Women’s Room

by Marilyn French

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.

‘Today’s “desperate housewives” eat your heart out! This is the original and still the best, a page-turner that makes you think. Essential reading’ Kate Mosse

The Women’s Room took the lid off a seething mass of women’s frustrations, resentments and furies; it was about the need to change things from top to bottom; it was a declaration of independence’ Observer
