On February 7, 2011, she announced that she would be resigning from Congress to become the head of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

Harman was born Jane Margaret Lakes in New York City, the daughter of Lucille Geier and Adolph. N. Lakes. Her father escaped Nazi Germany and worked as a medical doctor. Harman attended Los Angeles public schools, graduating from University High School in 1962. She received a bachelor's degree from Smith College in 1966 and was Phi Beta Kappa. Harman continued her studies at Harvard Law School, earning her law degree in 1969. In 1980, Harman divorced her husband Richard Frank. The same year, Harman (then 35) married Sidney Harman (then 61), who had recently sold his company Harman Kardon to Beatrice Foods for approximately $350 million (in 2009 dollars).
