From Spare Rib to Sisterhood was an 'in conversation' event held at Central Saint Martins during the A+ exhibition. Katy Hepburn and Sally Doust, the original designers of ground-breaking feminist magazine Spare Rib; and Marina Viktorsson, Rachita Sarogi, Rebecca Thomson of the newly formed Sisterhood collective were in conversation with current graphic design students and teaching staff, talking about their work, their inspiration and feminism and graphic design. The event was made possible by the unstinting support of Catherine Dixon and CSM graphic design students.
