Friedman Feminist Press Collection

The Friedman Feminist Press Collection includes books like 'Her,' a rowdy, irreverent novel by Cherry Muhanji that explores relationships among a community of black women's mothers and daughters, friends and lovers who came to Detroit in the late 1950s to work the lines at the Ford Motor plant.

Books by feminist presses

A valuable resource for students, scholars, and readers, the Friedman Feminist Press Collection at Colorado State University is the largest collection of books in the Rocky Mountain West published by feminist presses.

Providing original sources in feminist/lesbian literature and second-wave feminism, the collection archives multi-genre works by feminist publishers of the 1970s and 80s that brought women and women’s words out into the world.

Books in the Friedman Feminist Press Collection were donated from the private collection of CSU alumna Dr. Kayann Short, whose dissertation examined the development of feminist publishing, and on behalf of CSU’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Resource Center from director K. Foula Dimopoulos.

Collection dedicated to activist

The Collection is dedicated to June Friedman, a CSU alumna and member of The Feminist Group, a student activist group that raised awareness of women’s equality on the CSU campus.

Louise Knapp was the co-owner of Word Is Out Women’s Bookstore, which served as a resource for the Boulder feminist and LGBT communities for 14 years. Knapp will present a talk entitled “My Affair With Books.”
