              Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) was a pioneering sociologist, feminist pragmatist, author, and lecturer. A skilled and perceptive writer, she explained socio-logical concepts and principles clearly and concisely to popular audiences. This volume presents a focused and provoc...ative set of Gilman's penetrating analyses of marriage, motherhood, and family relationships. Generally unavailable, except in archives and special libraries, the lion's share of the analyses are drawn directly from Gilman's quintessentially unique self-published journal, The Forerunner. Transcending her era, Gilman speaks with wit, insight, and candour to twenty-first century readers about many controversial aspects of family and family life. She believes deeply that women's values - regeneration, cooperation, and compassion - make for better societies. Men's values, she concludes, are destructive, competitive, and often violent. Families produce double standards and inequalities between husbands and wives, resulting in inferior mothers and, as a direct consequence, in substandard children. To improve society, Gilman argues, we need healthy, happy children. This requires well-trained, competent mothers, widespread social parenting, and enlightened, non-patriarchal marriages. Largely self-taught, Gilman supported herself through writing and lecturing. She was at one time a settlement house leader and an active member of the American Sociological Society. Her wide sociological circle included lasting friendships with Jane Addams, Edward A. Ross, and Lester F. Ward.

              The Yellow Wallpaper is a psychological short story about a Victorian woman on the edge of a nervous breakdown. When her husband deems she needs a rest cure after the birth of their child, they rent an abandoned colonial mansion with a queer air about it. The narrator's claustrop...hobic room has unpleasant, oppressive yellow wallpaper which incites her decent into madness. Charlotte Gilman's stylistic short story is an important early American feminist text, illustrating patriarchal attitudes in the early 20th century toward women's health, both physical and mental.

              Women and Economics (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Gilman, Charlotte Perkins

              Describes how social and sexual disparities between men and women are the result of economics. This book argues that the position of women as the property of men and their inability to earn in proportion to the amount of work they do, tend to the differences between men as 'provi...ders' and 'competitors' and women as 'helpless' and 'unproductive'.

              This is written from memory, unfortunately. If I could have brought with me the material I so carefully prepared, this would be a very different story. Whole books full of notes, carefully copied records, firsthand descriptions, and the pictures-that's the worst loss. We had some... bird's-eyes of the cities and parks; a lot of lovely views of streets, of buildings, outside and in, and some of those gorgeous gardens, and, most important of all, of the women themselves.

              Let us begin, inoffensively, with sheep. The sheep is a beast with which we are all familiar, being much used in religious imagery; the common stock of painters; a staple article of diet; one of our main sources of clothing; and an everyday symbol of bashfulness and stupidity.

              Women and Economics - A Study of the Economic Relation Between Men and Women as a Factor in Social Evolution is a book written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and published in 1898. It is considered by many to be her single greatest work, and as with much of Gilman's writing, the boo...k touched a few dominant themes: the transformation of marriage, the family, and the home, with her central argument: the economic independence and specialization of women as essential to the improvement of marriage, motherhood, domestic industry, and racial improvement.

I haven't said where it was for fear some self-appointed missionaries, or traders, or land-greedy expansionists, will take it upon themselves to push in. They will not be wanted, I can tell them that, and will fare worse than we did if they do find it.
