Sallie Bingham Center, Duke University

The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection arrived at Duke University in April 2015. Created and collected by bibliophile and activist Unger Baskin, the focus of the collection is women's work through the ages. The collection includes many well-known monuments of women's history and arts, as well as lesser-known works produced by female scholars, printers, publishers, laborers, scientists, authors, artists, and political activists. Taken together, they comprise a mosaic of the ways that women have been productive, creative, and socially engaged over more than five hundred years.
