Feminist Press

Check out the new and fascinating books from the Feminist Press. I recently read Merle Hoffman's Intimate Wars and it was an engaging read. She covered in detail the war over abortion in New York City and I found myself coming away with a great deal of respect for her. It is a must read for anyone interested in feminist history. You can listen to an interview with Merle Hoffman on the BBC.

She the People from the Washington Post

"She the People" is a great blog from the Washington Post worthy of a regular read. Check it out here.

International Museum of Women

A wonderful rundown of women-centered activist opportunities is available at the International Museum of Women's site here.

After surfing around their site, I found a fantastic online exhibition of women's work in the global economy. Check it out!

You can even submit your own work to the Economica exhibit. Click the image for a link to their site.

Lamenting the lack of availability of women's books

Lately I have noticed a disturbing trend. Not only are there very few independent bookstores left in my area, but the bookstores have dramatically reduced the number of women's studies books they carry. Some bookstores have even eliminated a women's studies section and introduced a "gender studies" section instead. There is a dramatic difference between the two. If you are searching for an extensive list of women's studies books, try these excellent independent bookstores online:

Moms Rising Sees Great Succes with Pacifier Pins has seen incredible success having direct conversations with senators about family issues. Their ingenious campaign of having these powerful politicians wear pacifier pins has helped promote their family friendly agenda.

Here Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid wears their pin. Keep up the great work ladies!
