Bookstore at the Women's Memorial: "Arlington - Books exclusively on women" Top 5 Page for this destination Virginia Shopping Tip by matcrazy1
Virginia Shopping: 39 reviews and 87 photos
The bookstore at the Women in Military Service for America Memorial in Arlington Cemetery sells books and magazines dedicated solely to publications by and about military women. It advertised as the world's only such bookstore. I don't know whether it's true. Business everywhere loves two expressions: the first and the only. Never mind, I found there a few very interesting books. Being at the beginning of quite expensive trip around the South I didn't buy any.
What to buy: I liked most: "Our Mothers' War : American Women at Home and at the Front During World War II" by Emily Yellin.
Add interesting views, which I can't agree though, on sexism in military in the book "Ground Zero: The Gender Wars in the Military" by Linda Bird Francke.
What to pay: Generally beautiful books are expensive. But those I liked were over $10.00, not that bad.
Address: Women's Memorial, Arlington, Virginia 22211
Directions: Take metro to Arlington Cemetery station (+ a walk or metrobus) or by car (details in my Arlington Transportation Tips).
