They should also refuse to accept payment if bills have pictures of men on them.

Just to be consistent.

A bookshop in Ohio has made a graphic illustration of the position of female writers by leaving only books by women visible to its customers. The change, made to mark women’s history month, has provoked an angry reaction in some quarters, with accusations of sexism and censorship….

A sign in front of the display says: “Illustrating the fiction gender gap … we’ve silenced male authors, leaving works of women in view.” Loganberry is a feminist bookshop that retails new, used and rare books with an emphasis on women’s history and literature. The move is intended to be a conspicuous illustration of the current representation of women in print….

    I’d ask an employee why Animal Farm is not treated equally to The Feminine Mystique.

    NYT encouraged this with its shenanigans to keep conservative’s books off its best-selling lists. The Left always starts with a little discrimination. Book burning is bad, book banning is bad, book ghosting is okay. But it never stops there. The authors are the next target.

    They probably made some pimply-faced, minimum wage male employees turn all the books around.

    So, this is a feminist bookshop, and they have THAT many books written by men (and so few written by women)?? Otherwise, so typical of liberals that they can’t celebrate someone (women, in this case) without totally disrespecting someone else at the same time!

  4. The purpose of feminism is not to raise up women, but to diminish men.

    New book on Madame Marie de Tocqueville (Mary Mottley, England). Not much has been written on Alexis de Tocqueville’s wife before this book. Would think that book store would want to promote this book along with Alexis’ book, Democracy in America. As is, DiA would be turned backwards alongside his wife’s biography. Wonder what both would think about DiA today.

    Semi-interesting feminist conundrum re Mme de Tocqueville. Since her renown is because of her husband, is appropriate feminist response to ignore her or to publish biography? I prefer knowledge.

      Alain, thanks for sharing that about Mme. de Tocqueville; I had not even heard of her, but I think I would like to read the book you referenced.
