About meIn Other Words has been serving the Portland community as a feminist bookstore, a low-cost and safe events space, and as a community resource center for the past 17 years. We were founded in 1993 by Johanna Brenner, a PSU professor, and Kathryn Tetrick, and Kathryn Zameh, both women’s health activists, when A Woman’s Place, Portland’s only feminist bookstore, closed.

When we opened in 1993 there were over 200 feminist bookstores in the United States and today there are fewer than 30. In Other Words is the only feminist bookstore in the United States that also functions as a nonprofit organization, which has allowed us to serve a unique role in our communities.

As we have observed the demographic, cultural, and social transformations of Portland's diverse feminist communities recently, we've identified new needs and shifting interests that have inspired us to undertake one of the largest expansions in our organization's history: we are becoming In Other Words Feminist Community Center.
