Gilman, Charlotte Perkins (1860–1935), U.S. writer and women's rights activist. Opposed to traditional marriage, Gilman urged women to gain economic independence by working outside the home. She promoted her ideas through her books, The Yellow Wallpaper (1890), Women and Economics (1898), Concerning Children (1900), and The Home (1903), and through her monthly magazine, Forerunner (1909–16).
