When we were putting together our Holiday Gift Guide we really wanted to include a list of women-owned retailers in Boston. Weirdly, this was super hard to find. So, we created this list in the hopes that it’ll help your shopping and eating needs.

But then, it became more! We also have a list of businesses that may not have a physical location, which will include all sorts of services.

Please note that when we say women-owned business, there has to be at least 50% ownership by a woman. If you find anything in error, please let us know asap.

After reviewing the businesses here, if you find something missing please fill out this form and we’ll review it. Thank you!
