The Women's Bookshop is an award-winning independent New Zealand bookshop. Our purpose at the Women's Bookshop has always been to promote women's writing and to provide books reflecting women's diverse lives and interests. We also have lots of men customers and we welcome them. In recent years we have become one of New Zealand's leading specialists in therapy and counselling books.
As a quality, independent New Zealand bookstore, we are renowned for our passion for books and for our personal service. This includes fast, efficient mail-order all over the country, and a commitment to sourcing Special Orders - if it's available we'll get it for you.
We have been awarded:
NZ Bookseller of the Year for Promotional Activities in 2000, 2001 and 2002
Business Citizenship Award in the 2003 HerBusiness Businesswoman of the Year Awards
Winner of the NZ Independent Bookseller of the Year in 2005
We host frequent author events and publish Bookchoice, a bimonthly printed newsletter that gives readers an informed guide to good books. We are also much more than a bookshop. We are a community resource providing such services as a noticeboard; information about events, courses and community happenings; selling tickets and providing a friendly inviting space where women can meet.

What makes us different?
Our bookshop has a whole host of literature written for women by women. We're situated in a lively location on Ponsonby Road, close to bars, cafes, and specialty stores. Lately, we've become a leading provider of therapy/counselling books. We're not just a bookshop; we're a community and a warm space for women to meet.
