Today it’s the turn of Charlotte Gilman Perkins and her story The Yellow Wallpaper, which you can watch at newchillingtales.com on this site!
Here’s a little bit more about Charlotte Gilman Perkins and the Women’s Suffrage movement in the US. These were brave women flying in the facial of a social order which had lasted for hundreds of years. Historically women had been traded in
marriage for property and money. The woman would then have the protection of the man’s name and his promise to take care of her. It really has been a form of slavery, but well understood by women who colluded in the process until they woke up and realised that they must change from being second class citizens to individuals.
We live now in a much more liberated and hopefully happier time! Gavin Newsom’s, (the new Governor of California) wife’s will not be called First Lady, but Partner. How’s that for the Age of Enlightenment!
