Spare Rib: 21 years of radical feminist magazine goes online at British Library


Spare Rib, the radical magazine charting the grassroots feminist movement for 21 years from the early 1970s, summed up an era and a movement. Now its often challenging debates during an important period for women’s liberation, can be accessed online thanks to an ambitious project by the British Library.

All 239 editions of the magazine, which published from 1972-93, can be viewed for free, alongside articles written by academics, activists and former contributors about how Spare Rib was run, its history and the issues it tackled.
