Feminist Majority Foundation has a list of bookstores by region.  I am working through to make sure each is still open. One source I found said there are actually only 9 feminist bookstores still open in the US.

Please comment below to add more Feminist Bookstores from around the world!


  1. Are there no more Feminist Bookstores alive in Los Angeles?

  2. Apparently In Other Words is the only one remaining on the West Coast. :(

  3. Sisterhood Bookstore on Westwood Blvd in LA was, if not the only, then at least the LAST feminist bookstore in LA (that I was aware of) but it tragically closed MANY years ago. :-(
