In Other Words, the Feminist Bookstore from Portlandia, Needs Our Help!

by Mariana Garces

You probably recognize In Other Words as the feminist bookstore from Portlandia where Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein play finicky shop owners Candice and Toni. But they need our help! It’s already hard enough being an independent bookstore these days, even harder when you are a non-profit, volunteer-run operation. See the video below to learn more about the crucial role In Other Words plays in the Portland community.

The shop has served as a feminist community resource center since 1993, that also hosts educational and cultural events for the public. While Portlandia has served to bolster some local business, it’s not enough to keep the struggling shop open much longer without some serious help from supporters. 

 If you can, support and donate to the shop to keep it going!
