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!
