About Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Charlotte Perkins Gilman was an American novelist, poet and social reformer who had a major impact on the women’s rights movement in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. She is most well known for her 1898 work, The Yellow Wallpaper, which is considered one of the earliest examples of feminist literature.
Born in Hartford, Connecticut in 1860 to two prominent authors – Frederick Beecher Perkins and Mary Fitch Westcott – Charlotte’s interest in writing began at an early age. After her parents divorced when she was young, she experienced financial hardship and was forced to become self-reliant. She did not allow these struggles to stop her from following her passions however; rather they motivated her to fight for equality among the sexes by advocating for women’s rights and suffrage throughout her lifetime.
