She attended the New School for Social Research (AB, 1963) and Columbia University (AM, 1965; PhD, 1966). Lerner was one of the earliest proponents of women’s history as a field of study in developing curricular material, in preserving and publicizing source material, in upgrading the status of women in the profession, and in her distinguished research and writing. She taught (1968-1980) at Sarah Lawrence College, where she established the nation’s first Women’s History graduate program, and at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where she created the nation’s first Women’s History PhD program. She wrote more than a dozen books, including, The Grimké Sisters from South Carolina: Rebels against Authority (1967), Black Women in White America: A Documentary History (1972), The Creation of Patriarchy (1986), and Fireweed: A Political Autobiography (2003).
