The Feminist Bookshop


Be the first to review

The Feminist Bookshop is an independent bookshop and plant-based café based in central Brighton. The shop opened in November 2019 following a successful crowdfunding campaign.

The concept was born a couple of years ago when the bookshop’s founder, Ruth, started running a feminist bookclub in living rooms around Brighton and Hove.

Initially, she was just looking to make some new friends and share a love of books about feminism, but the amazing community that grew out of it inspired her to take it to the next level – and convert her living room into a feminist bookshop!

The idea is to build a community space, encouraging people to come together in a fun, open space for dialogue, discussion and debate.

At the bookshop we seek to support and promote self-identifying female and non-binary writers, creatives and entrepreneurs in all that we do. We stock a range of books written by and about women, host events celebrating female artists and provide a space to talk about the issues that affect us – all while sipping delicious coffees and cakes sourced from awesome female-owned businesses.
