Shocking Pink was a feminist zine put out by a collective of young women in London, including Katy Watson who died in 2008. As the organiser of last year’s Women’s Library described it ‘Shocking Pink, which ran from the late 1980s to early 1990s, billed itself as a “radical magazine for young women”. Part magazine with serious political coverage, part school-club magazine (if your classmates were hot-headed, deliciously witty, rebel grrrls) this magazine pre-dated riot grrrl zines with its fusion of sass, cultural appropriation and sprawling biro-made doodles all over the margins and type face’.
