#WIHMX Day 26 – Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Today I’m choosing writer and humanist Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Her story The Yellow Wallpaper was a semi-biographical piece written when she was suffering from postnatal depression.

The Yellow Wallpaper is a harrowing tale in which Gilman highlights the issue of mental health in a time when women experiencing depression were seen as being hysterical and nervous.
