about this book

Edited and with an Introduction by Lynne Sharon Schwartz. Known primarily for her classic and haunting story “The Yellow Wallpaper,” Charlotte Perkins Gilman was an enormously influential American feminist and sociologist. Her early-twentieth-century writings continue to inspire writers and activists today. This collection includes selections from both her fiction and nonfiction work.

Gilman’s stories combine humor, anger, and startling vision to suggest how women’s “place” in society should be changed to benefit all. Also contains selections from Gilman’s fiction and nonfiction, including: "Women and Economics", "The Man-Made World", "If I Were a Man", "Turned", "The Cottagette", "An Honest Woman", "Making a Change", "Mr. Pebbles’ Heart", "The Widow’s Might", and "Herland".
