December feminist shopping at In Other Words! by InOtherWords, at In Other Words 1:46 am / 03 December 2014
Wow, did you know that, in the United States, women-identified adults comprise 85% of all consumer purchases?! Yep, that’s a thing. And that means that consumer purchasing is inherently a feminist issue due to the incredible amount of purchasing power we have in consumerist culture.
So, next time we’re out and about looking for just that perfect gift, let’s remember to always strive to shop ethically, responsibly, and with a feminist mindset that supports local artisans and local shops. And what better way to kick it off than by heading on over to In Other Words Feminist Community Center!
We’re open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 12PM – 7PM for all your feminist artisan craft and literature needs. And, for the fourth year in a row, we’re staying open late and hosting a super exciting feminist holiday open house right here at In Other Words on Thursday December 4th! You can get a head start on stocking up on gifts for your friends and chosen families, as well as enjoying some snacks and mingling with friends, new and old! Our new board of directors will be there to welcome you, as will many of our volunteers.
Are you introverted and want to sprint in the other direction at the sheer mention of “mingling”? Have no fear! We’ve got several comfy couches and lots of great new books and magazines for you to curl up and read.
To whet your appetite and get you excited, here are some little juicy morsels of titilating joy, created and crafted and consigned and for sale by local feminist artists:
BOOKS and MAGAZINES!
TOTE BAGS to carry your books and magazines!
HAPPY SHOPPING, FEMINISTS! See you soon!
