Here is what I posted to the PCW Facebook page:

This will be my last official post on the PCW page.  Tomorrow Linda and I will be signing the paperwork that will transfer pretty much everything, including the facebook page and website and e-list, over to her.  I can't wait to see how she will take PCW through its next glorious chapter!  Please support her in this effort, let her know your thoughts and visions and needs. listen to hers as well, and above all please remember that we are all in this together!  
Please allow me to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of you who have loved and supported PCW!  Whether you were here from the beginning or joined in sometime later in our 24 year herstory, I sincerely believe that this bookstore mattered and made a real difference thanks to all of us!  And, thanks to Linda, and some old and some new collective efforts and commitments, that herstory will continue. She is still looking for a space for the new PCW and she will be able to keep you all posted on that from now on.  But seriously, thank you so much everyone who has been a part of PCW and it's feminist beliefs and values and activism!!!  Hope it's not too corny to say that I love you all so much!!!
One last ask: please visit  the events page at for some upcoming events that I really want everyone to know about in case they don't.  
Thank You Feminist Friends!
P.S. My personal email will continue to be and the new PCW email for the store will be









People Called Women, a Multicultural Feminist Bookstore in the Toledo, Ohio metropolitan area, has been providing books, unique woman-made gift items, music, social and educational events, meeting space, and resources for Northwest Ohio' s and Southeast Michigan's women's community since 1993.  National feminist events, such as the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival and the National Women's Studies Association annual conference, and the internet have given People Called Women the opportunity to reach feminists throughout the U.S., Canada and other areas of the world.  However, surviving as an independent bookstore in today's market is very difficult.

That's why shopping at People Called Women is so important.  Not only do you support a woman-owned small business, you help sustain a space that supports women’s organizations and projects, feminist social justice initiatives, educational and cultural programming that empowers diverse girls and women from Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan, and informal meetings of women that inspire innovative thought and reflection on the multitude of socio-economic, political  issues affecting women’s lives today.

At People Called Women you'll find the kind of books you want to read and the unique gift items you want to give.  Come to the store to check out our terrific selection of used books by women, and our large collection of new books by and for women (fiction, mystery, health, memoirs, ecofeminism, nonfiction, poetry, children).  Join us for a Saturday Night Social, a mini Crafts Fair, a live performance, a book signing, a book group discussion, and/or a community organization meeting.

If you can't make it to the store, you can call us at 419-469-8983, or email us at for mail order, or shop online at  We gladly and gratefully accept special orders!
