Additional Information:
Bluestockings is a radical bookstore, fair-trade café, and activist center located in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New York City. It is volunteer-supported and collectively owned. The store started in 1999 as a feminist bookstore and was named for a group of Enlightenment intellectual women, the Bluestockings.

"Bluestockings Cooperative seeks to embody and share the principles of intersectional, abolitionist, trans-affirming, gender nonconforming, and sex-worker affirming feminisms and support liberatory social movements. Bluestockings strives to empower our worker-owners through non-hierarchy, cooperation, and consensus-based decision making, providing an example of the society we are working toward."
