The Feminist Bookstore Movement

From the 1970s through the 1990s more than one hundred feminist bookstores built a transnational network that helped shape some of feminism's most complex conversations. Kristen Hogan traces the feminist bookstore movement's rise and eventual fall, restoring its radical work to public feminist memory. The bookwomen at the heart of this story—mostly lesbians and including women of color—measured their success not by profit, but by developing theories and practices of lesbian antiracism and feminist accountability. At bookstores like BookWoman in Austin, the Toronto Women’s Bookstore, and Old Wives’ Tales in San Francisco, and in the essential Feminist Bookstore News, bookwomen changed people’s lives and the world. In retelling their stories, Hogan not only shares the movement's tools with contemporary queer antiracist feminist activists and theorists, she gives us a vocabulary, strategy, and legacy for thinking through today's feminisms.

This book examines the history of women's bookstores in the US from the 1970s to the 1990s. It establishes that women's bookstores played an important role in feminism by enabling the dissemination of women's voices and thereby helping to sustain and enrich the women's movement. They improved women's literacy - their abilities to read, write, publish, and distribute women's voices and visions - and helped women to instigate a feminist revolution in literacy.

The aim of each volume of this series Guides to Information Sources is to reduce the time which needs to be spent on patient searching and to recommend the best starting point and sources most likely to yield the desired information. The criteria for selection provide a way into a subject to those new to the field and assists in identifying major new or possibly unexplored sources to those who already have some acquaintance with it.

Joanna Russ has written extensively - as novelist, short story writer, and critic - on feminism, science fiction, and fantasy. These essays, spanning almost twenty years of that career, range from Russ's consideration of the aesthetic of science fiction to a reading of Willa Cather's lesbian identity as it emerges in her writing. To Write Like a Woman includes essays on horror stories and the supernatural: feminist utopias; Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, the "mother" of science fiction; popular literature for women (the "modern gothic"); what the fascination with "technology" often hides in popular culture, especially in science fiction movies and Star Trek; and the feminist education of graduate students in English. As a writer, Russ also addresses theorists and critics of literatureÑas they address her own work and the work of other writers.

Mit fünfzehn Vorschlägen für eine feministische Erziehung wirft die Bestseller-Autorin Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie so einfache wie wichtige Fragen auf und spannt den Bogen zwischen zwei Generationen von Frauen – ein Buch für Mütter und Töchter. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Feministin und Autorin des preisgekrönten Weltbestsellers ›Americanah‹, hat einen Brief an ihre Freundin Ijeawele geschrieben, die gerade ein Mädchen zur Welt gebracht hat. Ijeawele möchte ihre Tochter zu einer selbstbestimmten Frau erziehen, frei von überholten Rollenbildern und Vorurteilen. Alles selbstverständlich, aber wie gelingt das konkret? Mit ihrem Manifest ›Liebe Ijeawele. Wie unsere Töchter selbstbestimmte Frauen werden‹ zeigt Chimamanda Adichie, dass Feminismus kein Reizwort ist, sondern eine Selbstverständlichkeit. Mit fünfzehn simplen Vorschlägen für eine feministische Erziehung öffnet sie auch den Blick auf die eigene Kindheit und Jugend. Die junge nigerianische Bestseller-Autorin steht für einen Feminismus, mit dem sich alle identifizieren können. We should all be feminists!
