Professor Tinker earned her B.A. from Radcliffe College in political philosophy and comparative government and her PhD from the London School of Economics and Political Science in comparative government and development. Her dissertation was on India’s first general elections and parliament after independence.[8][9]

With two colleagues, she drove a Ford Anglia from London to New Delhi in 1951. In 1953, she and her new husband drove back to London from Mombasa, Kenya, in an Austin A40. Her travelogue became a book, Crossing Centuries, published in 2010.[10][11]
Tinker was appointed a United States delegate to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women in 1973. President Jimmy Carter appointed her assistant director of action in 1977.[1] She was a Fulbright Scholar in Nepal and Sri Lanka from 1987 through 1989.[12]
In 1977, Tinker became an associate of the Women’s Institute for Freedom of the Press (WIFP).[13]
Prior to UC Berkeley, she served on the faculties of Howard University, Federal City College/University of the District of Columbia, University of Maryland, and American University. As director of the international office of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, she convened a seminar on women and international development in Mexico City in 1975 prior to the first UN International Conference on Women.[12]
