Librairie et féminisme : rôles, relations et interdépendance

Abstract : This work presents the historical, sociological, and cultural connections between the book trade and feminism. In 2017, the #metoo movement allowed for the launch of a new editorial dynamic that focused on publishing more and more feminist works, including major commercial successes such as Mona Chollet's Sorcières. Yet feminism and bookstores share a long history: as early as the 1970s, radical feminist bookstores opened their doors in the United States, Great Britain and France. This dissertation traces the history of these relationships and the socio-cultural legacy that emerges, allowing us to take stock of the links between feminism and the bookstore today. The commercial interest of the publishing industry in the subject of feminism has developed in parallel with the motivation and politicization of booksellers, and more particularly of women booksellers, who are giving an increasing place to feminism in stores. To understand how this relationship is concretely translated in bookstores, three studies of feminist departments complete the reflection developed throughout this work.
