you have crossed borders and included us all on your bookshelves
and in projects and programs organized by your store. Now again,
you cross a new frontera in your search to empower us as storytellers
and women. I am proud of you for not stopping at success but
being courageous enough to change as the needs change... Your
leadership and vision are more necessary now than ever. Pa'lante!"
--Julia Alvarez, acclaimed author (In the Name of Salome,
In the Time of the Butterflies)
"The idea of having an institute for women's writing -- for women
from all generations -- is a brilliant move on the part of the New
Words Bookstore. Given the desire to work in neighbourhoods
that include Mattapan, Dorchester, Chelsea and Roxbury, it is evident
that the project will be of interest to women who have a wide variety
of interests. In this way, they are ensuring that we continue to
make history in circumstances (almost) of our own choosing!"
--Kum-Kum Bhavnani, Founding Editor, Meridians: Feminism,
Race, Transnationalism; Director, Women, Culture and Development
Program, University of California, Santa Barbara
"The Center for New Words is a creative and necessary next step
in the cultivation of an open and inclusive civil society. At
this juncture in the American political and cultural context, we
urgently need to find ways to give power and space to diverse women's
voices. CNW will play a national role in doing just this."
--Barbara Ehrenreich, Political analyst; renowned author
(Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America) slot machine a sous gratuit
"New Words Bookstore has always been a place where the voices of
women are listened to and heard. Authors, readers, scholars and
activists alike have found a home here in the best sense of the
word: a place where one's ideas and one's life are accepted and
encouraged to grow. This kind of space is more important now than
ever, which is why I'm so enthusiastic about the creation of the
Center for New Words. I'm confident that in the coming decades,
we will turn to the Center for New Words again and again to inspire
and transmit women's voices in ways we have not yet even imagined."
--Carol Gilligan, Feminist scholar, groundbreaking feminist
psychologist; author (In a Different Voice, The Birth
"With imagination, extraordinary industry and a belief in the
words and organizational abilities of women, they will create something
new, a Center that will build bridges to the next generation.
I believe that the women who fiercely sustained New Words Bookstore
will do it."
--Grace Paley, poet and author (Enormous Changes at the
Last Minute, Begin Again)
"With women's bookstores and presses folding all over the map like
the tents of a defeated army, New Words is taking bold measures
not only to survive but to become a more relevant, outreaching and
vibrant institution in the Boston area. Their plans are ambitious,
but a visionary approach is exactly what is needed. I applaud
their plans and hope to be a part of them." Casino en Linea
--Marge Piercy, Groundbreaking feminist author and poet (The
Moon is Always Female, Gone to Soldiers, Woman on
the Edge of Time)
