Bluestockings actively supports "movements that challenge hierarchy and all systems of oppression" and is one of only 13 identified feminist bookstores left between the US and Canada. Bluestockings is collectively run by volunteers and is collectively owned, and aims to be non-hierarchical.".
In 2003, Bluestockings was purchased by a new owner and a new collective began to operate the store, widening the focus from feminism to global justice. Since 2003, it has continued to operate as a collectively-owned feminist and radical bookstore, as well as a hub for activist and leftist literary and intellectual gathering. The space also continues to host author readings, screenings, and panels nearly every night that are free to attend. There is also a small fair trade café that serves coffee from one of the Zapatista coffee cooperatives.
