New Words was one of the great women’s spaces: a bookstore but also a place where women gathered, heard wonderful readings and important speakers, and shared our joys and concerns. It is entirely fitting that a non-profit center for feminist education, arts and politics carry on and expand this work. In today’s oppressive political climate we need this sort of space more than ever: a local venue that brings us together and nurtures our thought, visions, and contributions to a future where justice and creativity can bloom.
