Feminist Revolution in Literacy Summary

Feminist Revolution in Literacy: Women's Bookstores in the United States by Junko Onosaka (University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, USA)

This book examines the history of women's bookstores in the US from the 1970s to the 1990s. It establishes that women's bookstores played an important role in feminism by enabling the dissemination of women's voices and thereby helping to sustain and enrich the women's movement. They improved women's literacy - their abilities to read, write, publish, and distribute women's voices and visions - and helped women to instigate a feminist revolution in literacy.
