Last week, I visited New York City hoping to wander into a feminist bookstore or two. I found Bluestockings, and it's a phenomenal bookstore. I browsed shelves filled with books having topics that ranged anywhere from abortion rights to gender identity. I must have picked up seven or eight books, along with some other small feminist merchandise. Eventually, I narrowed it down to three books and a few feminism-themed items (pictured above).
Bluestockings is in the Lower East Side. As soon as you enter the store from the street, you can hear social justice centered conversations at tables in the front of the store, receive amazing assistance from the individuals behind the counter, and find books that will meet all of your feministy needs.
