Shopping, Bookstores Andersonville
Women and Children First

Time Out says

Don’t be fooled by the store’s name; though the Andersonville shop has a definite feminist slant (and is one of the largest feminist bookstores in the country), any and all can find something here. The store stocks more than 30,000 books by and about women, plus children's titles, and it's considered one of the city's best sources for lesbian and gay fiction and nonfiction. It's also an active location for author readings and community events, and it's the endearing inspiration for Portlandia's Women and Women First bookstore sketch.
