About Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Charlotte Perkins Gilman is considered one of the most influential women writers of all time, credited with helping to shape the feminist movement and inspire women's rights. Born in 1860 in Hartford, Connecticut, she was a prolific author and lecturer who wrote on social reform issues such as race, gender equality and economic justice. Her best-known work is the short story "The Yellow Wallpaper," which was published in 1892 and has since become a classic of feminist literature.
Gilman also wrote novels, poetry and nonfiction works that explored themes of emancipation from traditional roles for women. She believed that economic independence was essential for female self-fulfillment, which she achieved through her writing career as well as her lectures about social reform topics. In addition to advocating for equal rights for women, Gilman advocated for broader civil rights reforms around race and class discrimination.
