The epilogue enacts the author’s reflection on why this book matters as a map of a still-necessary lesbian antiracist feminist practice of accountability. Through the author’s narrative of her own last days at the Toronto Women’s Bookstore, she imagines what a feminist practice informed by feminist bookstore histories might look like. The epilogue uses the term “feminist remembering” to name the writing of movement histories with attention to feminist accountability, a writing that requires us to hold both the painful breaks and the powerful connections of feminist bookwomen’s history. This is the practice of the feminist shelf that feminist bookwomen created and pass on: using a context of feminist histories to understand the significance of these breaks and connections, to understand them in dialogue with each other, to use this history, this feminist work, to build toward a common language for queer antiracist feminist accountability.
