One Way For An Indie Bookstore To Last? Put Women ‘First’

“As recently as 25 years ago, there were more than 100 self-described feminist bookstores in the U.S. — stores focusing on books written by and for women. Like most independent bookstores, though, their numbers have dropped dramatically over the years. Chicago’s Women and Children First is among the few feminist stores still standing, and one of the largest. The store opened 34 years ago in 1979. Now, after a long, successful run, the store’s owners say they’re ready to retire — and they’re looking for a buyer to continue the store’s mission.” (via NPR)
