Whether you want to read interviews with revolutionary political activists like Angela Davis, brush up on your feminism with an 80s A to Z guide to the movement, or delve into progressive creative fiction, the pages of Spare Rib are worth browsing.

The Open Archive: Spare Rib, Saturday 21st September, 1pm to 3pm


Emerging from the underground press in 1972 and running until 1993 this iconic Women’s Liberation magazine makes up an important part of our collection.  Stop by for a look and be surprised by its continuing relevance and radical outlook.

On Saturday 7th December, we have a second Open Archive event this Autumn on Christmas Yarns. Find out more here.


This event is a drop-in session, but there will be an introduction to the materials near the beginning of the session. It is free to attend, open to all, and there is no need to book.


Glasgow Women’s Library is wheelchair accessible, with lifts to the first floor and the Mezzanine Floor. We have accessible toilets and all the bathrooms are individual closed stalls and are gender neutral. Our larger Events Space is fitted with an induction loop. A portable induction loop is also available. For paid events free companion tickets are available.

Find more information on Accessibility at GWL or contact us and we will be very happy to offer assistance.
