Charlotte Perkins Gilman was an American author who lived in the period 1860-1935. Among her literary legacy are many short stories, novels and non-fiction works, but she was also interested in humanism and held many lectures on social reform and responsibilities. She was a feminist who wanted to prove to other women that they could lead the life they wanted. The topic was often depicted in her works and many of her main characters were women who had to deal with mental breakdowns, everyday problems or lack of understanding from society’s side. Some of Gilman’s best known works are "The Yellow Wallpaper", "His Religion and Hers", and "Herland". Her autobiography "The Living of Charlotte Perkins Gilman: An Autobiography" was published in the same year she took her own life.
