Issue 13, 1991
This cult issue of San Francisco based publication RE/Search reads more like a college textbook than a journal; Angry Women (1991) features exclusive, longform interviews with feminist theorist bell hooks, avant-garde writer Kathy Acker, pioneering performance artist Carolee Schneemann and 13 other iconic feminst figureheads. “Anger is an emotion which must be reclaimed and legitimised as Woman’s rightful, healthy expression – anger can be a source of power, strength and clarity as well as a creative force,” write editors Andrea Juno and V. Vale in the introduction. Full of punk black-and-white photographs and illustrations, Angry Women pushed the boundaries of what feminism could look like in the early 1990s – topics including menstruation, masturbation, vibrators, failed utopias and the death of the Sixties are all discussed. ‘How can you have a revolutionary feminism that encompasses wild sex, humor, beauty and spirituality plus radical politics?’ reads the blurb.
