About the Author

Charlotte Perkins Gilman, born 1860 in Hartford, Connecticut, married Charles W. Stetson in 1884. She suffered from postpartum depression after the birth of her daughter and separated from her husband in 1888, divorcing him in 1894. After his quick subsequent remarriage, Gilman caused a scandal by sending her daughter to live with her husband and his new wife. In the early 1890s, Gilman began publishing poems and stories, including "The Yellow Wallpaper" in 1892, and became a lecturer on labor, feminism, reform, and suffrage. In 1898, she published Women and Economics, a call for financial independence for women. In 1900 she married her cousin, George H. Gilman, and the couple moved to New York City. From 1909 to 1916 she wrote, edited, and published the monthly magazine The Forerunner, in which she published most of her work from then on, including What Diantha Did (1910), The Man-Made World (1911), Moving the Mountain (1911), and both Herland and With Her in Ourland. With Jane Addams she founded the Woman's Peace Party in 1915. After treatments for cancer failed, she took her own life in 1935.
