Over the past few decades, New Words Bookstore has been undoubtedly one of the key institutions making the larger public aware of the impressive array of women’s writings and contributions that address the role of women in society. Much of this literature still gets minimal mainstream attention, so that the need for a vehicle to promote “women’s words” is as great as ever. New Words Bookstore has the track record and connections - at the local, national, and global levels - to ensure that a Center for New Words will both continue and expand this vital mission. We look forward to our continued collaboration with the women at New Words, adding our own large network of women writers and advocates to community dialogues that advance the cause of women’s writings and the social change agenda of the many women’s movements across the globe.
