Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (married name: Charlotte Perkins Stetson) (born July 3, 1860 – died August 17, 1935) was an American feminist, sociologist, novelist, writer of short stories, poetry, and nonfiction, and a lecturer for social reform.

She was a utopian feminist during a time when her accomplishments were exceptional for women, and she served as a role model for future generations of feminists because of her unorthodox concepts and lifestyle. Her best remembered work today is her semi-autobiographical short story "The Yellow Wallpaper" which she wrote after a severe bout of postpartum psychosis.
