About

Our Feminism is for Everybody! We believe in gender equality and a diversity of feminist perspective.

In Other Words is a feminist community center in Portland, OR and the last surviving non-profit feminist bookstore in the United States.  For the last 17 years we have offered a diverse collection of books, magazines, and zines with a wide variety of subjects, including: feminist & queer studies, erotica, sex & sexuality, trans studies, spirituality, herbs, and alternative children’s books, to name a few.

In Other Words is also a hub of activity-hosting a wide range of community events, meetings and workshops that include author readings, book clubs, writing workshops, concerts, art shows, yoga and much more. We also support many local progressive organizations by providing the space and outreach opportunities for community based activities and public forums to encourage dialogue and debate.

We have a new resource center designed to network and connect people to local services, classes, and organizations. Our resource center also helps people find rides out of town, roommates & housing, musicians & artists, and much more.

In Other Words is a volunteer driven organization-with more than fifty people whose dedication, diverse experiences, and time helps build and sustain the store and community space. The leadership is made up of primarily young activists who look to In Other Words for connection, community, and a political home. Our innovative program supports volunteers in taking leadership in a wide variety of ways-running the store, selling textbooks at local universities, organizing community events, building the resource center and much more!
