The Best of Spare Rib

Long before feminist websites like BitchBuzz and 'zines like Pamflet were published, Spare Rib was the feminist magazine du jour.

First published in June 1972 by 21-year-old Rosie Boycott and her 28-year-old co-editor Marsha Rowe, Spare Rib proved to be so popular and important to women it was published for 20 years. To celebrate and pay tribute to the 40 year anniversary of Spare Rib, we've chosen 20 of our favourite Spare Rib covers, featuring colourful illustrations and feminist icons like Angela Davis and Jane Fonda.
