Spare Rib

Spare Rib was launched in 1972, emerging out of the counter culture of the late 1960s. It was part of the 'underground' press, providing a feminist alternative to commercial women’s magazines. The first magazine of its kind in the UK, its purpose was to investigate and present alternatives to the traditional gender roles for women. An extensive collection of most if not all publications can be found in the Women's Library reference/reading room in London.
