In Other Words Women’s Books and Resources in Portland, OR is the last surviving non-profit feminist bookstore in the United States.
In Other Words is more than a bookstore and is a hub of activity—hosting a wide range of community events, meetings and workshops that include author readings, Spanish classes, writing workshops, concerts, art shows, yoga and much more.
In Other Words, like so many of our fellow bookstores, has fallen
upon incredibly hard financial times. With the decline in our current
economy, we have experienced severely decreased revenue. If we are
unable to raise $11,000 by the end of December, In Other Words will
have to close its doors.
We desperately need your help. We are confident that if everyone who
cares about In Other Words makes a contribution, large or small, we
will meet our goal. Please give as generously as you can to save the
last remaining non-profit, feminist bookstore in the country: the
place where so many Portland artists, activists, organizers, readers,
writers, political thinkers, musicians and poets find their voice,
their power, their community, and their political home.
