Women owned feminist bookstores provide woman-created and sustained space that feels safe, comforting, life sustaining with woman affirming authors and books. These bookstores provide space for community organizing and workshops, a place to meet and be among peers, and spiritual sanctuary for many. They are deeply missed when they have to close due to lack of support. People Called Women Bookstore in Toledo, Ohio, where the Steinem's Sisters Library is housed, is one of only 13 women owned feminist bookstores remaining in North America (U.S. and Canada).
