The Feminist Press at the City University of New York

Publisher Description

The Feminist Press at the City University of New York is a nonprofit literary and educational institution dedicated to publishing works by and about women. We are the oldest continuing feminist publisher in the world; our existence is grounded in the knowledge that mainstream publishers seeking mass audiences often ignore important, pathbreaking works by women from the United States and throughout the world.

The Feminist Press was founded in 1970. In its early decades the Press launched the contemporary rediscovery of "lost" American women writers, and went on to diversify its list by publishing significant works by American women of color. More recently, the Press has added to its roster international women writers who are still far less likely to be translated than male writers. We also seek out nonfiction that explores contemporary issues affecting the lives of women around the world.
