Charlotte Perkins Gilman and
“The Yellow Wall-Paper”

Monday, March 10th – Friday, April 18th
Cook Library, 3rd floor

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 exhibit explores the story behind Gilman’s indictment of the medical profession and the social conventions restricting women’s professional and creative opportunities. This exhibition is sponsored by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.
