About Seal Press
Inspired by the simple yet radical notion that a book can change a woman’s life, Seal Press is devoted to publishing titles that inform, reveal, engage, delight, and support women of all ages and backgrounds.
From cultural revelation to pop culture, our books are smart and fun, insightful and hilarious. Take a glance at just some of our titles and you’ll see why readers love our edgy, über-honest take on all sorts of topics: There’s Offbeat Bride, for example, which shows the newly engaged how to avoid the claws of the multimillion-dollar wedding industrial complex and create a celebration that’s personal and authentic. The Anti 9-to-5 Guide lays out a master plan for how to ditch the cubicle maze for a more satisfying career, and The Risks of Sunbathing Topless reveals laugh-out-loud confessions of adventures gone embarrassingly awry.
These books and many, many more have been adored by readers for over thirty years. Seal Press was founded in 1976 as a small DIY publisher to provide a forum for women writers and feminist issues, and since then, Seal has published groundbreaking books that represent the diverse voices and interests of women. Seal’s continually growing list includes books about women’s health, parenting, outdoor adventure and travel literature, popular culture, sexuality, gender and transgender life, sports, relationships, memoir, careers, finance, current affairs, and much more.
We’ve scored some firsts and broken a few barriers, publishing the first book on African American women’s health, critical guidebooks on lesbian relationships and parenting, key writings of the third wave feminist movement, and essential, deeply personal stories by transgender men and women. Our readers tell us our books continually engender thought, rage, laughter, tears, and deep connections with other women, often in ways they never expected.
With each book, we strive to make a difference in women’s everyday lives, and to tell the truth—the real truth—about the issues that matter to women the most.
