Taunton School was recently privileged to welcome Germaine Greer to its prestigious John Rae Society. Taking the bull by the horns, Ms Greer addressed 300 pupils, parents, staff and guests about issues of sexual freedom dating back to the 1950s in her discussion of `Forty years of feminism and fun.



The audience applauded her enlightened and at times disarmingly candid views. Questions from the floor took over 30 minutes (the only banned topic was `Big Brother); a fortunate few took supper afterwards and enjoyed further conversation with this remarkable public commentator and academic.
