I am delighted and very grateful to have received this bookmark in the post from The Feminist Bookshop in Brighton, England. Thank you so much!
If ever I get to England again, I definitely want to visit this bookshop! I also want to visit Brighton in general, as I have recently discovered, through my ongoing family history research, that I have numerous ancestors from Brighton and no doubt many cousins still living there.
Initially, she was just looking to make some new friends and share a love of books about feminism, but the amazing community that grew out of it inspired her to take it to the next level - and convert her living room into a feminist bookshop!
The idea is to build a community space, encouraging people to come together in a fun, open space for dialogue, discussion and debate.
At the bookshop we seek to support and promote self-identifying female and non-binary writers, creatives and entrepreneurs in all that we do. We stock a range of books written by and about women, host events celebrating female artists and provide a space to talk about the issues that affect us – all while sipping delicious coffees and cakes sourced from awesome female-owned businesses."
