About Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Charlotte Perkins Gilman is an American author and activist who was a prominent figure in the women's suffrage movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Born in 1860, Gilman was a prolific writer whose works were instrumental to the development of feminist thought. She wrote widely on economic, social, and political issues from her base in California, where she moved at age 32.
Gilman is best known for her work as a writer of short stories and non-fiction prose on topics related to feminism, socialism and women's rights. Her most famous work is "The Yellow Wallpaper," which recounts the experience of a woman struggling with mental health issues while locked away by her husband in an upstairs bedroom. The story has become part of feminist literature since its publication in 1892 and continues to be read today as an important contribution to the literary canon.
