About Women & Children First

Women and Children First began in a modest storefront in 1979. Over the years the store has moved twice and is now in Andersonville, a northside Chicago neighborhood known for its diversity, queer-friendliness, women-owned businesses and community spirit. Its staffers include teachers, graduate students, professional writers and storytellers, political activists, board members, and poets. Their purpose in beginning the store 33 years ago was to promote the work of women writers and to create a place in which all women would find books reflecting their lives and interests. They strive to do this in an atmosphere in which all are respected, valued, and well-served, online as well as in the store.

Named by more than 60 critics as one of the best books of 2010
