Protect Feminist Books at Vancouver Women's Library

A book-banning campaign by Gays Against Gentrification (GAG) is demanding the Vancouver Woman's Library (VWL) remove and ban over twenty feminist books from their collection. These works -- written by renowned women authors who have a long history of engaging in critical analysis against the oppression of women as a class -- focus on female exploitation, male supremacy, violence against women, reproductive freedom, lesbian identity, women's health and buddhist mindfulness. As a matter of principle and in defense of freedom of speech and thought, no library should ever ban any books under any circumstance - especially ones written by and for women at the VWL. As fascism takes deeper root throughout the world, it is more important than ever that any attempt to silence women in their struggle for liberation is resisted by all, at every moment. We urge the Progressive Librarians Association to publicly support the VML as they reject these draconian demands and choose to keep these books on their shelves.
