These addenda document the personal life, professional career, and research interests of Charlotte Bunch. The bulk highlights Bunch's teaching and other activities associated with the women's liberation movement, including her most recent work as director of the Center for Women's Global Leadership, and work related to the UN. The collection contains letters from many feminists, including Gloria Steinem (#22.11), Rita Mae Brown (#20.7), Shere Hite (#32.4), Phyllis Chesler (#20.3), and Kate Millett (#F+D.1). Also included is substantial conference material, from conferences organized by the Center, those sponsored by the UN, those organized with collaborating women's organizations, and others sponsored by the various advisory boards and committees on which Bunch served. Electronic records received with the collection will be reformatted at some future date for inclusion in appropriate series. Finding aids for earlier accessions are available online (85-M30--85-M66 and 87-M149); there is some overlap of materials among these three groups of papers. Most of these papers were received in folders identified by subject. A substantial amount of personal correspondence was stored in envelopes. The archivist created the arrangement and folder titles. Loose materials were sorted and interfiled. Most of the photographs in this collection are or will be cataloged in VIA, Harvard University's Visual Information Access database. Others, referred to as "uncataloged" photographs, are not of sufficient research interest to warrant cataloging and are simply treated as part of the documents they accompany; they are marked on the back with an asterisk in square brackets [*]. Additional material (accession numbers 96-M110, 97-M13, 98-M62) was added to the collection in January 2014. These materials are housed in #106.1-112.11, FD.2, F+D.7-F+D.10, PD.10v-PD.12f, T-474.1 - T-474.60.

Educator, lesbian feminist, writer, and activist Charlotte Bunch was one of four children born to Marjorie Adelaide (King) and Charles Pardue Bunch on October 12, 1944, in West Jefferson, North Carolina. That same year her family moved to Artesia, New Mexico, where she attended local schools and graduated with honors from Artesia High School in 1962. Bunch continued her education at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, majored in history and participated in numerous extracurricular activities, including membership in Phi Beta Kappa, the Liberal Action Committee, and the World Student Christian Federation (WSCF), which supported the civil rights movement through marches and pray-ins. As a WSCF member, she also participated in a study project that included travel to China, and served as a student delegate to the World Council of Churches Conference on Church and Society in Geneva, Switzerland. The first national president of the University Christian Movement, Bunch was one of the organizers of the Washington, DC Community Project and Center for Emergency Support, an experiment in community action and continuing education. Bunch earned a BA in history in 1966, graduating magna cum laude; her honors thesis was entitled The Role of Women in Chinese Revolution, 1929-1959.
Bunch pursued graduate studies in education and social change at the Institute of Policy Studies (IPS) in Washington, DC, a non-partisan research institute (1967-1968). She initially served as an IPS consultant for the Depth Education Groups, a study involving 50 campuses sponsored by the University Christian Movement. In 1968 she married James Lloyd Weeks. The couple separated in 1971; there were no children. Over the next ten years, as her work responsibilities increased at IPS, her status changed from visiting to resident and finally tenured fellow. During this period Bunch was also involved in anti-war protests and the women's liberation movement. She helped organize the National Women's Liberation Conference held outside of Chicago in 1968 and joined the Jeannette Rankin Peace Brigade. A year later she moved to Cleveland, Ohio, organized the city's first women's liberation school, and conducted weekly seminars on feminist theory. She returned to Washington, DC, in 1970, and continued working at IPS, teaching classes on women's issues and feminist theory. She also helped establish the D.C. Women's Liberation School, organized a women's caucus within the Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam, and represented the US women's liberation movement during a peace trip to North Vietnam and Laos. She subsequently helped organize the first International Conference of North American and Indochinese Women held in Toronto, Canada, in 1971.
Bunch continued to teach and develop feminist theories that were inclusive of lesbians within the movement. Eventually, her teaching activities expanded to include colleges and universities, including the Washington Area Free University, American University, Georgetown University, the Graduate Theological Union, and the University of Maryland at College Park. Bunch also conducted research, attended conferences, and taught classes on feminism in international settings. In 1973, she conducted a study of women in Nairobi, Kenya, and Tanzania sponsored by WSCF. During International Women's Year (1975), precursor of the UN Decade for Women (1976-1985), she attended conferences in Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji. Between 1984 and 1986, she taught classes for various women's organizations in Lima, Peru, and Santiago, Chile.
During her tenure at IPS, Bunch also became a co-founder and editor for several publications. Along with Rita Mae Brown and others, she was responsible for publishing Motive Magazine (1969), one of the earliest collections of women's liberation materials, The New Women: A Motive Anthology on Women's Liberation (1970). With partial funding from IPS, she became a founding editor of The Furies (1972-1973), a lesbian/feminist newspaper, and later, Quest: A Feminist Quarterly (1974-1984). Bunch also produced numerous articles, anthologies, and other publications widely regarded as feminist classics, including Liberation Now: An Anthology of Women's Liberation Writings (1971), Class and Feminism: A Collection of Essays from the Furies (1974), Lesbianism and the Women's Movement (1975), Learning our Way: Essays in Feminist Education (1983), and Passionate Politics: Feminist Theory in Action (1987).
Bunch left IPS in 1977 to form the Public Resource Center in Washington, DC, a non-profit, membership-based organization. Similar to her earlier work with the United Christian Movement, her work with the Center promoted community-based democracy and used action-studies guides that encouraged the establishment of publicly controlled health services, offered strategies to avoid evictions, and assisted in the preparation of model legislation for full employment and community development. The Center also offered educational opportunities through its Union Graduate School, a non-residential PhD program.
In 1979, Bunch formed Interfem Consultants based in Brooklyn, New York. As an international consultant, she organized and participated in conferences that focused on women's issues, lectured, and provided educational resources. In 1981 she was hired as a consultant by the International Women's Tribune Center (IWTC) to develop its resource center and build international feminist networks that supported its work with the UN Decade for Women (1976-1985). In preparation for the mid-Decade United Nations World Conference on Women, she developed the International Feminist Network Against Trafficking in Women, also known as the Female Sexual Slavery Project. The Project, which included workshops in Brussels (1980) and Copenhagen (1983), culminated in a report edited by Bunch, Katherine Barry, and Shirley Castley, and published by IWTC as International Feminism: Networking Against Female Sexual Slavery (1984). Bunch was also hired as a consultant by the UN Non-governmental Liaison Service and the UN Secretariat to organize NGO (non-governmental organization) forums held during the 1985 UN World Conference in Nairobi, Kenya. Interfem Consultants was formally dissolved in the early 1990s.
In 1987, Bunch became the third occupant of the New Jersey Laurie Chair in Women's Studies at Douglass College, a women's liberal arts college at Rutgers University. During her two-year fellowship she developed and taught seminars, attended women's conferences, and pursued related research interests. When the fellowship ended in 1989, she remained on the Laurie Chair advisory committee to recruit and select future occupants. She also became a collaborative educator within the consortium of academic units that comprise the Institute for Women's Leadership, which, in addition to Douglass College, includes the Center for the American Woman and Politics, the Institute for Research Studies, the Women's Studies Department, and the Women and Gender Studies Department of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Bunch later taught at the department of urban studies at the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, where she became a full professor in 1991, and was given recognition as a distinguished professor by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences in 2001.
In 1989 Bunch became the founding director of the Center for Global Issues and Women's Leadership at Rutgers, later renamed the Center for Women's Global Leadership. Formally launched in 1990, the Center brought greater visibility to the University through annual leadership institutes, the coordination of international campaigns and projects, and collaborative sponsorship of conferences, forums, and symposia organized to address global issues of violence against women in all forms, including the impact of wars and armed conflicts, the intersection of HIV AIDS and violence, and human trafficking. Under her leadership, the Center has been an active participant in the advocacy, monitoring, and policy reform of UN affiliate agencies, and has published analysis of various UN World Conferences, current policies, and related issues, including Demanding Accountability: The Global Campaign and Vienna Tribunal for Women's Human Rights (1994), Holding on to the Promise: Women's Human Rights and Beijing + 5 Review (2001), Women at the Intersection: Indivisible Rights, Identities, and Oppressions (2002), and the UN Secretary General's Study on Violence Against Women (2006).
In addition to her work at the Center, Bunch has served on the advisory boards and committees of many organizations, including Ms. Magazine Foundation, the Open Society Institute's Network Women's Program, the Women's Rights Division of Human Rights Watch, and Realizing Rights: the Ethical Globalization Initiative.
In recognition of her substantial, ongoing contributions to the global empowerment of women, Bunch was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in 1996. She is a recipient of numerous other awards, including the Eleanor Roosevelt White House Award for Human Rights (1999), the Human Rights Award presented by Church Women United (1999), the Women Who Make A Difference Award presented by the National Council for Research on Women (2000), and the New Jersey Board of Governors Distinguished Service Award (2002) for her work at Rutgers University.

The preeminent research library on the history of women in the United States, the Schlesinger Library documents women's lives from the past and present for the future. In addition to its traditional strengths in the history of feminisms, women’s health, and women’s activism, the Schlesinger collections document the intersectional workings of race and ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and class in American history.
