About Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Charlotte Perkins Gilman was an American author, poet, lecturer, and feminist. She is best known for her short story "The Yellow Wallpaper" and her non-fiction treatise Women and Economics. Gilman's works explored the ideas of gender inequality in a patriarchal society through themes such as feminism, gender roles, social reform, and economic independence.
Born in Hartford, Connecticut in 1860 to progressive parents who were part of the early women's rights movement, Gilman grew up surrounded by radical ideas that shaped her writing throughout her life. After a brief marriage at age 22 that ended in divorce due to financial instability and an unhappy relationship with her husband, she began to write prolifically about issues of gender equality. In 1898 she published Women and Economics which argued for economic independence for all women as an essential element of their freedom from male domination.
