About Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Charlotte Perkins Gilman was a prominent American author and feminist during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. She wrote extensively about women's roles in society, arguing that they deserved greater economic and political autonomy. Her most famous work is her short story “The Yellow Wallpaper”, which details the effects of mental illness on a woman's life.

Her other works such as Women and Economics (1898) and Human Work (1904) were also highly influential in their time. Her work sought to challenge traditional gender roles, often advocating for economic independence among women and exploring their experiences as working professionals. She is considered one of the most important figures of early feminism in the United States. In 1998 she was posthumously inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame for her pioneering work in advocating for gender equality throughout her career as an author.
