Charlotte Perkins Gilman


Charlotte Perkins Gilman 
 Charlotte Perkins Gilman  (1860–1935) was American feminist, sociologist, novelist, writer and social reformer. 
 While she is best known for her fiction, Gilman was also a successful lecturer and intellectual. One of her greatest works of nonfiction, Women and Economics, was published in 1898. A feminist, she called for women to gain economic independence,  

Along with writing books, Charlotte Perkins Gilman established The Forerunner, a magazine that allowed her to express her ideas on women's issues and on social reform. It was published from 1909 to 1916 and included essays, opinion pieces, fiction, poetry and excerpts from novels.
 Charlotte Perkins Gilman committed suicide on August 17, 1935.


* Eternity is not something that begins after you're dead. It is going on all the time. We are in it now.
* To swallow and follow, whether old doctrine or new propaganda, is a weakness still dominating the human mind.
* There is no female mind. The brain is not an organ of sex. As well speak of a female liver.
