Woman at a deskLiterature of Prescription: Charlotte Perkins Gilman and The Yellow Wall-Paper

During a time when women were challenging traditional ideas about gender that excluded them from political and intellectual life, artist and writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman, who was discouraged from pursuing a career to preserve her health, rejected these ideas in a terrifying short story titled "The Yellow Wall-Paper." The exhibition Literature of Prescription: Charlotte Perkins Gilman and "The Yellow Wall-Paper" explores the story behind Gilman's indictment of the medical profession and the social conventions restricting women's professional and creative opportunities.
