Women and Economics Charlotte Perkins Gilman – Women and Economics. A Study of the Economic Relation Between Men and Women as a Factor in Social Evolution is a book written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and published in 1898. It is considered by many to be her single greatest work, and as with much of Gilman's writing, the book touched a few dominant themes: the transformation of marriage, the family, and the home, with her central argument: the economic independence and specialization of women as essential to the improvement of marriage, motherhood, domestic industry, and racial improvement.Startling in its observations and radical in its conclusions, this classic of women's rights literature, this work-by pioneering American feminist CHARLOTTE PERKINS GILMAN (1860-1935)-was a phenomenon when it was first published in 1898, and was eventually translated into in seven languages and reprinted around the world. From her characterization of women as virtual economic, social, and sexual slaves, dependent on men for everything from food to friendship to protection, to her call for women to free themselves from these shackles, Women and Economics electrified Victorian readers. It remains a foundational work of feminist theory, essential reading for anyone wishing to understand women's struggle for full and self-determined personhood .

Аннотация

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) ist das zweite Kind von Mary A. Finch und Frederick B. Perkins, einem Neffen von Harriet Beecher Stowe, der Autorin von «Onkel Toms Hütte». Der Vater, Schriftsteller und Bibliothekar, verlässt die Familie bald. Die Mutter schlägt die Familie mit Gelegenheitsarbeiten durch. Gilman besucht die Kunstgewerbeschule, danach entwirft sie Grußpostkarten und arbeitet als Hauslehrerin. 1884 heiratet sie den Kunstmaler Charles Walter Stetson und bekommt von ihm 1885 eine Tochter. Nach der Geburt hat Charlotte Perkins Gilman tiefe Depressionen. Ein Spezialist in Philadelphia verordnet ihr eine Ruhekur, bei der jegliche geistige Anstrengung eingeschränkt und das Schreiben untersagt ist. Durch diese Kur fühlt sie sich so zerrüttet, dass sie ihre Familie verlässt und zu einer Freundin nach Pasadena in Kalifornien flieht. 1892 veröffentlicht sie mit «Die gelbe Tapete» ihre erste Kurzgeschichte, die auf den Erfahrungen aus der Zeit ihrer Nervenkrise basiert. Die Veröffentlichung führt zu heftigen Reaktionen. «Die gelbe Tapete» gilt bis heute als literarisches Meisterwerk. Nach Charlotte Perkins Gilman 1934 an Brustkrebs erkrankt war, nahm sie sich ein Jahr später, mittels einer Überdosis Chloroform, das Leben.

"Women and Economics" is a book written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and published in 1898. It is considered by many to be her single greatest work, and as with much of Gilman's writing, the book touched a few dominant themes: the transformation of marriage, the family, and the home, with her central argument: «the economic independence and specialization of women as essential to the improvement of marriage, motherhood, domestic industry, and racial improvement.» The 1890s were a period of intense political debate and economic challenges, with the Women's Movement seeking the vote and other reforms. Women were «entering the work force in swelling numbers, seeking new opportunities, and shaping new definitions of themselves.» It was near the end of this tumultuous decade that Gilman's very popular book emerged. Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) was a prominent American feminist, sociologist, novelist, writer of short stories, poetry, and nonfiction, and a lecturer for social reform.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) was an American sociologist, author, poet, and lecturer whose influential work and unorthodox lifestyle made her an icon for future generations of feminists. Much of her work criticized common perceptions of the role of women in marriage and society, and advocated educational, financial, and cultural equality for women. This edition features «Herland», a utopian novel about the exploration of an isolated, entirely female, society by three American men. Also included is her most famous work, «The Yellow Wall-Paper», a semi-autobiographical story written by Gilman in 1890 after a severe bout of post-partum depression. The story of a woman who is driven insane after three months trapped in her home, deprived of any mental stimulation, was a direct criticism of the doctor who «treated» Gilman's depression. The stories and poems in this collection were taken from newspapers, periodicals and Gilman's self-published magazine, «The Forerunner».

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) was an American sociologist, author, poet, and lecturer whose influential work and unorthodox lifestyle made her an icon for future generations of feminists. Much of her work criticized common perceptions of the role of women in marriage and society, and advocated educational, financial, and cultural equality for women. In addition to «The Yellow Wall-Paper,» which is studied by most students in the United States today, Gilman is well known for her 1898 book, «Women and Economics». In this book, Gilman employs the theory of Social Darwinism as a basis for promoting reform. She points out that human beings are the only species in which the female is dependent on the male for survival, and that men have claimed credit for all human progress. This book made Gilman an instant success, bringing her the independence which she desired, and was later translated into seven languages and adopted as a textbook.

Аннотация

"Herland" is Charlotte Perkins Gilman's utopian novel about a fictitious society of women who reproduce by asexual means resulting in an ideal society that is free of conflict and war. Originally published in serial form in Gilman's self-published monthly magazine «Forerunner» from 1909 to 1916, the title nation of «Herland» is symbolic of the argument for social reform in the area of woman's rights that took place in the early part of the 20th century in America. By placing women in such an ideal light, Gilman is arguing that women should have as much say in the matters of the world as men and if they did society would be better off for it.
