Radical feminist magazine Spare Rib to be relaunched as bimonthly glossy and website
Radical feminist publication Spare Rib is to be relaunched as a glossy magazine and website as feminist alternative to “PR and celebrity-filled women’s” publications, according to reports.
Journalist Charlotte Raven said in an email that she and supporters have raised the £6,000 to launch the website and are now looking for a further £20,000 to get the bimonthly magazine on to the shelves by the autumn.
A launch party is planned, according to The Guardian, at which MP George Galloway and columnist Rod Liddle will serve cocktails.
The revitalised Spare Rib – the original started in 1972 and folded in 1993 – will, said Raven, “revive the spirited and soulful vision of feminism that SR once embodied not the timid liberal one that dominates the mainstream media”.
She said the new title will be funny, have the feel of a girls’ club and rather than be a niche publication will be found along mainstream women’s titles like Cosmopolitan.
