Women & Children First

Chicago, Illinois

Disabled-Owned LGBTQIA+ Owned Woman-Owned

Women & Children First began in a modest storefront in 1979. Over the years we've moved twice and are now in the north side Chicago neighborhood of Andersonville, known for its diversity, queer-friendliness, women-owned businesses, and community spirit. Our staffers include graduate students, professional writers and storytellers, political activists, board members, and poets. Each of us is a reader, a feminist, and a bookseller. Our purpose in beginning the store nearly 40 years ago was to promote the work of women writers and to create a place in which all women would find books reflecting their lives and interests. We strive to do this in an atmosphere in which all are respected, valued, and well-served. That is our purpose still, online as well as in the store.
