Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) | Topics | tutor2u Politics

Charlotte Perkins Gilman was a trailblazer within the women’s movement, a prominent figure within the first-wave of feminism and is perhaps best-known for her story entitled ‘The Yellow wallpaper.’ It is a tale of a woman who suffers from mental illness after being closeted in a room by her husband. As the title suggests, the trapped woman becomes obsessed with the colour of the wallpaper. Her work serves to highlight the lack of autonomy within women’s lives and how it undermines their mental and emotional well-being.
