About the Exhibit

The exhibition Five Hundred Years of Women’s Work: The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection introduces Baskin’s collection to the public for the first time. Prior to its arrival at Duke, this had been a private collection accessible only to the fortunate students and scholars invited to visit Lisa Baskin’s library.

Five Hundred Years of Women’s Work will be on exhibit February 28 – June 15, 2019 in the Mary Duke Biddle Room, Sperling Family Exhibit Cases, Michael and Karen Stone Family Gallery, and Josiah Charles Trent History of Medicine Room.
