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.
