Our History

The current incarnation of the Harvard College Women's Center, founded in 2006, is the heiress of a long line of women's centers at Harvard-Radcliffe. 


We encourage you to explore that rich history in the documents and links below.

The Harvard College Women's History Walking Tour was written by Linzy Brekke and produced by the Office of News and Public Affairs with support from the History Department, Harvard University, and the Schlesinger Library, Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. In 2011, it was updated by Suzanna Bobadilla with help from the Harvard College Women's Center.
