The Northern Woman's Bookstore is a feminist-run bookstore in Thunder Bay, Ontario, comprised of excellent literature, good company, and first-rate service.

The books we carry include woman-centered, First Nations and Metis, local writers, and those addressing social, economic, and political justice. Book launches, music events, book clubs, writer’s circles, art installations, and workshops are hosted regularly by the Northern Woman’s Bookstore.

The bookstore is owned and operated by Margaret Phillips with the support of a dedicated collective of diverse, politically engaged women. The bookstore has been in operation for over 25 years and owes its success to the left-of-centre, justice-minded readership of Northwestern Ontario and beyond.  

The Northern Woman's Bookstore is a feminist bookstore that serves both the urban centre of Thunder Bay as well as regional communities across the Northwest. All are welcome.


One of our many cakes of celebration!
