Spare Rib magazine issue 133


Around the early 1980s, Spare Rib covered many events which characterised this period of political turmoil including the struggles of women in areas of conflict around the world. It often drew parallels between campaigns and struggles of women in different parts of the world in articles which sought to reach a greater understanding of some of the big political questions such as nuclear proliferation and the struggle of Republican women in Northern Ireland.
