The entire album adopts a feminist theme, focusing on the plights of women in the 1970s. Its liner notes parody adult advertising, giving the telephone numbers, birthdates and vital statistics of the male band members. (John Lennon appears as "John O'Cean", with his number listed as "Not for Sale"). Lennon played guitar on the tracks "Woman Power" and "She Hits Back",[3][4] and sing a backing vocal line on "Men, Men, Men".[4] Lennon's album, Mind Games, was released around the same time as Feeling the Space, in November 1973.[4]

The album was originally planned to be a double until EMI/Apple demanded it be edited; two of the songs excised from the double were issued as singles in Japan. The entire released album, plus the songs originally intended for the double release, is included as the "Run, Run, Run" disc on the "Onobox" set.[5]
