London: Spare Ribs Ltd., 1973. Quarto, publisher's staples photo-illustrated wraps.
1973 issue of British second-wave feminist magazine Spare Rib. Evolving out of the 1960s underground press movement, Spare Rib was founded by British journalist and baronnes Rosie Boycott and Australian-born writer Marsha Rowe. Boycott and Rowe set out to create a mainstream radical feminist publication, with the help of women staffers and writers from the alternative/counterculture magazine Oz. It ran until 1993, and is considered one of the most significant magazines out of the Women’s Liberation Movement, particularly for its prescient intersectional ethos and focus on reproductive rights while boldly addressing stigmas surrounding both mental and physical health. This issue comprises regular features on work, sex, psychology, arts, law, book and movie reviews, and more, with a cover feature on jealousy. Illustrated with black-and-white photos, drawings, cartoons and ads. Some creasing, soiling, and edgewear. Very good. Item #7643
