Editing Cheatsheet


How does Charlotte Perkins Gilman differ from other women's-rights specialists (she never called herself a feminist) during her life and how does this impact how we view her today? In addition, do you beleive Gilman's views on sexuality helped or hurt her arguments towards fememine libertation?

Here are my notes on the reading... - Matt 12:27, 27 September 2007 (EDT)


Did anyone else think it strange that rationality is listed as a masculine trait (p.xxxiii) rather than a human quality? How does this square with this quote of Gilman’s? Eric Strome 01:21, 27 September 2007 (EDT)


I don't believe we gain much by debating the nature (or lack thereof) of Gilman's racism. It is common to see many individuals during this period having a somewhat quixotic view on race, which I believe is due to their inherent intelligence battling with their societies entrenched beliefs and their own upbringing regarding race. jab2210 (Jeff Bremick)
