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.
It ' s part of a larger project to expand the cultural imagination — be that of the
mainstream media or that of the feminist movement — to accommodate all kinds
of difference . Today ' s young feminists insist that the world acknowledge our
set of conditions as it tried to find a readership and build communities of like-
minded readers around the visual depiction of feminist issues and ideas. In her

Nicknamed both “Mobtown” and “Charm City” and located on the border of the North and South, Baltimore is a city of contradictions. From media depictions in The Wire to the real-life trial of police officers for the murder of Freddie Gray, Baltimore has become a quintessential example of a struggling American city. Yet the truth about Baltimore is far more complicated—and more fascinating. To help untangle these apparent paradoxes, the editors of Baltimore Revisited have assembled a collection of over thirty experts from inside and outside academia. Together, they reveal that Baltimore has been ground zero for a slew of neoliberal policies, a place where inequality has increased as corporate interests have eagerly privatized public goods and services to maximize profits. But they also uncover how community members resist and reveal a long tradition of Baltimoreans who have fought for social justice. The essays in this collection take readers on a tour through the city’s diverse neighborhoods, from the Lumbee Indian community in East Baltimore to the crusade for environmental justice in South Baltimore. Baltimore Revisited examines the city’s past, reflects upon the city’s present, and envisions the city’s future.

For decades, lesbian feminists across the United States and Canada have created information to build movements and survive in a world that doesn't want them. In Information Activism Cait McKinney traces how these women developed communication networks, databases, and digital archives that formed the foundation for their work. Often learning on the fly and using everything from index cards to computers, these activists brought people and their visions of justice together to organize, store, and provide access to information. Focusing on the transition from paper to digital-based archival techniques from the 1970s to the present, McKinney shows how media technologies animate the collective and unspectacular labor that sustains social movements, including their antiracist and trans-inclusive endeavors. By bringing sexuality studies to bear on media history, McKinney demonstrates how groups with precarious access to control over information create their own innovative and resourceful techniques for generating and sharing knowledge.
Living a feminist life is not merely about the self “becoming feminist” but also
about the self becoming part of a feminist world ... Feminist modifies more it
would seem—feminist philosophy, feminist theory, feminist movement, feminist bookstore.

This book explores queerness in the context of changing economic, intellectual, sexual, and school terrains. Greteman proposes the concept queer thriving to imagine how queers might develop in-contestation to becoming normalized. This work and the work of queer thriving challenge various norms that have evolved over the course of queer theory’s history. To read queer thriving into the world takes the reader into investigations of the child, the seminar classroom, queer cultures, the history of AIDS, and emerging discourses on barebacking and PrEP. Queer thriving guides queers into a 21st century that does justice to diverse queer existences, past and present.

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 feminist poetry movement emerged as the women's movement did. It flourished in writing workshops and at open readings, on the kitchen tables of self-publishing poets/ activists, at political rallies, and in the work of established women poets who began slowly to transform their ideas about formal strategies and thematic possibilities.By 1972 feminist poetry had a solid network of feminist publishing to sustain it, and its practitioners, including Judy Grahn and Adrienne Rich, were publishing poems that contemplated not just the common oppressions faced by women but the differences between women themselves.This book explores the roots of this movement in the upheavals in American poetry in the 1960s and charts the central components of feminist poetry as they grew out of this period and as they were influenced by important, even revolutionary, women poets -- like Emily Dickinson and Muriel Rukeyser -- who had gone before. By looking not only at the volumes of poetry that emerged in the 1970s, but also at the abundant women's journals and newspapers that relied on poetry as a mainstay of expression during this period, this book demonstrates the central role that feminist poetry played in forwarding the goals and spirit of the women's movement. It also explores how this movement's early ideas and practices sustained it through periods of social and governmental backlash.

This volume brings together practical and essential information in the basic areas of women's lives. It covers topics such things as to embark on brand new careers, rear better families, have more free time, enjoy more exciting sex lives, become financially independent and politically powerful, how to task for a raise, start a daycare center, or establish a credit identity. This information was culled from sources such as how-to literature for women, from nineteenth-century periodicals to modern how-to manuals, books, articles from out-of-print magazines, from little-known pamphlets, and a few classics from women's writings about women. In addition, this book provides a "Woman's Directory, " a yellow-pages like section at the back of the book, listing a wealth of organizations and facilities for women.
