The Living of Charlotte Perkins Gilman : An Autobiography Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1869-1935) was one of the leading intellectuals of the American women's movement in the first two decades of the twentieth century.

Moving beyond the struggle for suffrage, Gilman confronted an even larger problem-economic and social discrimination against women.

Her book, Women and Economics, published in 1898, was repeatedly printed and translated into seven languages.

She was a tireless traveler, lecturer, and writer and is perhaps best known for her dramatic short story, The Yellow Wallpaper Gilman's autobiography gives us access to the life of a remarkable and courageous woman. Originally published in 1935, soon after Gilman's death, The Living of Charlotte Perkins Gilman has been out of print for several years.

This edition includes a new introduction by Gilman's noted biographer, Anne J.
