About Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Charlotte Perkins Gilman was a prominent American author, poet, and lecturer in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. She is renowned for her progressive views on gender roles and her ability to capture the dynamics of power within relationships. Her most famous works include “The Yellow Wallpaper” short story and Women and Economics treatise. She wrote extensively about feminism, advocating for greater economic independence for women through education, paid employment outside the home, birth control access, and an end to sexual double standards.

Gilman is considered one of the leading figures in early American feminism as well as a key contributor to utopian literature. Her work challenged dominant ideas about gender roles that existed at the time but still have relevance today. Through her writing she sought to create an ideal world free from restrictive social norms imposed by religion or tradition that restricted women's lives.
