About Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Charlotte Perkins Gilman was a pioneering American writer, lecturer and activist. Known as an advocate for women's rights, she is best remembered for her short story The Yellow Wallpaper, which is widely recognized as a feminist classic. Born in 1860, Gilman lived and worked during the late 19th century when sexism was commonplace. Despite this, she was determined to make her voice heard and advocated tirelessly for the emancipation of women from oppression and exclusion from society.

Gilman wrote prolifically throughout her life on a range of topics including feminism, socialism, race relations, child labor laws and other social justice issues. She wrote fiction stories such as The Yellow Wallpaper and nonfiction works such as the essay collection Women and Economics (1898) which argued that economic freedom for women would lead to their emancipation from male domination.
