The collected fictions and essays of a leading figure in the woman’s movement of the early twentieth century and a pillar of the American feminist canon—Charlotte Perkins Gilman

“There is no female mind. The brain is not an organ of sex. Might as well speak of a female liver.”—Charlotte Perkins Gilman

This edition of Gilman’s work includes her best-known story, “The Yellow Wall-paper,” a terrifying tale about a woman driven to the brink of insanity by the “rest cure” she is ordered to follow by her doctor to relieve her postpartum depression. Also included is a wide range of other short stories; an abridged version of her little-known but brilliant utopian novel, Herland, about a peaceful all-female world; and selections from her landmark treatise, Women and Economics, first published in 1898 to universal acclaim.
