These Are the Last of America's Dying Feminist Bookstores.
"About twenty years ago, there were well over 100 self-described feminist bookstores in the United States. ... However, that number has plummeted over the years, and as Anjali Enjeti noted recently in Paste Magazine, only around a dozen remain in North America."
This may seem sad at first, but remember, the number of bookstores in general has plummeted over the past couple decades. It's now a lot easier to find feminist spaces, because you can do it online. Plus, you can find a much more diverse range of feminist spaces, including those that don't exclude trans women and women of color!
So all and all I think things are actually better now, but I am bummed that none of these bookstores are in the Seattle area. But if you live elsewhere, check out Paste Magazine's original list.
