Literature of Prescription: Charlotte Gilman

Visit this exhibition of the life and career of writer and early feminist Charlotte Gilman, with details of the publication and impact of her often-anthologized short story, "The Yellow Wall-Paper." In the exhibition, you can learn more about the late 19th century attitudes toward women and how those attitudes led to "the rest cure," which Gilman herself experienced, and which became the basis for her most famous short story.
