Women & Children & YOU First



I can’t say enough good things about Women & Children First.  They are an amazing store doing amazing intersectional work and I look forward to seeing what the new owners can bring to the table.  If you have a couple of bucks to throw their way, their dream is to revamp the store to have more space for authors, events, support groups, and activism, please consider donating to their fundraiser.  

There are so few feminist bookstores left in the US but I can’t under-emphasize how important it was to me personally and (probably to others) to be able to walk into a store and find books on the shelf about queer people.   I wish there was one in every city.  But even if Chicago is nowhere near you, I think that stores like this are so great for women authors to give them the spotlight that they often don’t get in the traditional literary world.  

So even if you can’t donate, reblog and signal boost please.

I’ve been here! Incredible atmosphere, great book selection! Help them out.

Woman speaks out against misogynistic abuse and is met with misogynistic abuse from men who believe misogynistic abuse doesn’t exist and that she should stop making them look bad.

I saw The Book of Life today, and while I did think the pacing was a little rushed (it really needed to step back and take a really deep breath) I really enjoyed it. Especially for her. 

Quick question, was bullfighting a thing in Mexico?
