About Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Charlotte Perkins Gilman was a groundbreaking American author, lecturer, and social reformer. Throughout her life and career, she worked to promote women’s rights, education for all classes of people, racial justice, and economic independence. She wrote extensively on the topics of gender inequality and roles in society.

Gilman is best known as the author of "The Yellow Wallpaper," a short story originally published in 1892 that has since become an essential part of feminist literature. The story follows a woman who is confined to her bedroom by her physician husband while suffering from postpartum depression; it explores themes such as control and power imbalances within marriage. In addition to this work, Gilman wrote several other novels including Herland (1915) which addressed the topic of gender equality through a utopian lens.
