The Betty Taymor Collection

For over half a century, Betty Taymor has been a prominent activist in the Democratic Party and an advocate for the advancement of women in politics, the workforce, and education. In 1968 she founded the Program for Women in Politics & Government (renamed first Politics and Public Policy and then Gender, Leadership, and Public Policy), with the goal of educating women about the political system and encouraging them to run for public office. This collection includes her personal memorabilia.
