About Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) was an American writer, lecturer and social activist. She is best known for her short story “The Yellow Wallpaper” (1892) which is considered a major work of American feminist literature. Throughout her life she wrote extensively on topics such as women's rights, education reform, racial equality and economic justice.

Gilman was born in Hartford, Connecticut to Frederick Perkins and Mary Fitch Westcott. At the age of three, Gilman's father abandoned the family leaving them in poverty with little means of support. In 1880 Gilman graduated from Rhode Island School of Design where she earned a degree in art history. After graduation she moved to California where she taught art classes at the University of California at Berkeley before embarking on her writing career.
