About Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) was a prolific American writer and feminist thinker who used her writing to advocate for social reform. She is best known for her short story “The Yellow Wallpaper”, which addresses the oppression of women in a patriarchal society. A lifelong advocate for gender equality, she published works that argued for equal rights and better opportunities for women in education, work, and public life.

Gilman wrote extensively on topics ranging from economics to sociology to cultural criticism. Her most influential works were Women and Economics: A Study of the Economic Relation Between Men and Women as a Factor in Social Evolution (1898) and The Man-Made World; or Our Androcentric Culture (1911). In these books she argued that economic independence was essential to achieving true freedom and empowerment for women. Find out more about Charlotte Perkins Gilman at
