Part of the Gibbs Smith Women's Voices series: A collection of literary voices written by, and for, extraordinary women—to encourage, challenge, and inspire.
Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860–1935) championed women’s rights in her prolific fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.
Discover three influential works by one of America’s first feminists in their unabridged form: the short story The Yellow Wallpaper, a haunting interpretation of postpartum depression; the feminist utopian novel Herland; and Women and Economics, which when published in 1898 established Gilman as a sociologist, philosopher, ethicist, and social critic, and is considered by many to be her greatest work.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860–1935) championed women’s rights in her prolific fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. In addition to writing books, she produced a magazine of essays, fiction, opinion pieces, and poetry that spoke to women’s issues and social reform: seven volumes of The Forerunner were produced, running from 1909 to 1916.
