Amargi Bookstore, Archive and Library


Amargi opened and runned the first and only feminist bookstore in Turkey. The bookstore offered feminist, anti-militaristic, anti-homophobic books, and magazines mostly in Turkish.

Unfortunately we were forced to close our bookstore for financial reasons. We hope to reopen it as soon as possible. Right now you can find a small collection of feminist literature as well as the Amargi magazines in our office on Istiklal Caddesi. You are very welcome to pass by and have a look!


Archive and Library

We are currently working on an online catalogue which includes all our media:

  • Records of the Saturday discussions about feminist issues
  • Interviews with Amargi members
  • Oral History Project (film and audio records)
  • Documentation/Reports of Amargi projects, campaigns
  • Articles about feminist movements in Turkey
  • A collection of old magazine editions of Pazartesi, Sozialist Feminist Kaktüs, Roza, Jujin
  • Important books about feminist theory, feminist literature, etc.

Until then you can contact us via e-mail/phone or come to the office and check out our materials.

As our library is a reference library you cannot take the books with you.
