‘What about the women!’

We loved finding this graffiti on the notice in the corridor outside the British Library’s exhibition on punk rock http://www.bl.uk/events/punk-1976-78
with the Sex Pistols crossed out and the Slits, X-Ray Spex, Siouxie and the Banshees and Viv Albertine, written in. ‘What about the women!!’ indeed! Go Viv!

Punk - what about the women!!
