Overview

Here is a cry for feminist revolution. In this work, Charlotte Perkins Gilman details how male-dominated culture has, through the very social devices that keep it in place, conspired to produce greater human suffering than is truly necessary. In this landmark work she explains how economic status, mobility, and autonomy are at the root of the subjugation of women worldwide.

For anyone wanting to understand the feminist movement, how far it has come, and how much of its ambition is yet unfulfilled, The Man-Made World is a fascinating work of philosophy and biting social commentary.

American writer and social reformer CHARLOTTE PERKINS GILMAN (1860-1935) was a pioneer of modern feminism. She is best remembered for her short story "The Yellow Wallpaper" (1890).
