„The objective of Women’s Review was more focused: to offer a woman’s approach to the arts and culture, especially ‚high‘ culture, rather than popular culture. Nevertheless, it covered diverse issues including romantic fiction, Madonna and bodybuilding- topics that Spare Rib could not handle as a result of its strong political stance (Winship 1987). With a small readership, Women’s Review was burdened by financial difficulties. Like Spare Rib and many other feminist alternative media groups, Women’s Review relied on subsidy from the Greater London Council, which was dissolved under the prime minstership of Margaret Thatcher along with many other sources of funding. “
