The Institute is also home to the Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America, which collects, houses, and preserves the historical record of individual women and women’s organizations. The Radcliffe Institute’s dedication to intellectual risk taking, bold ideas, and innovative collaborations creates an environment where original thinkers from Harvard University and around the globe advance understandings that better our world.
