Support The Women's Library @ LSE

Supporters share some of their stories and reasons for supporting The Women’s Library @ LSE 

The Collection

The Women's Library is the oldest and most extensive collection of women’s history in Europe, and a key part of the UK’s national heritage.

Founded in 1926, The Women’s Library collection has developed to become a world-leading resource of material relating to women’s history. In its new home at LSE, this material will benefit from expert staff, fantastic facilities, and a programme of events and outreach activity intended to reach a wide public audience.

Philanthropic support has played an important role in the evolution of the collection, and The Women’s Library @ LSE continues to welcome such support for the maintenance, conservation and exhibition of these collections.
