Support Your Local Feminists in The Quest to Smash the Patriarchy!

Wild Iris Books has existed for decades as a retail indie bookstore, knowing that selling books was the smallest part of what we do. The most important part of what we do is this: we create a safe feminist space.  We take in interns and volunteers and help them find their authentic voice and gather skills to take forward in the fight.  We expand language to include all sexualities and genders.  We host diverse events that celebrate the many creative aspects of our community and beyond. We love and we care for each other as we battle the patriarchy ingrained in every aspect of our lives. 

But now we need your help to keep us going in the fight against the patriarchy. This is the link to our Indie GoGo. Take a look around.

girls, who were bullied most of their life and gain confidence at one point, should be feared most because they dont take anyone’s shit no longer and they will destroy you if you think otherwise

Yes.

I feel renewal that can only happen with self determination. Much appreciation to my amazing friends and Gainesville family.
