Transcript: Charlotte Perkins Gilman Women's Suffrage Crash Course History Women's Suffrage Crash Course History Women's Suffrage Bad Romance Women's Suffrage Bad Romance Gilman was born on July 3, 1860, in Hartford, Connecticut. Fun fact: She is the great-niece of Harriet Beecher Stowe (the author of Uncle Tom's Cabin). When her mother was told to not have any more children, her father abandoned the family and left them in extreme poverty. Early Life Early Life As a result of their economic state, Gilman's mother moved her family from relative to relative in Rhode Island in order to survive Growing Up Growing Up After her father's departure, Gilman's mother became extremely cold and detatched from her children. She wanted to protect her children from any further suffering by denying them any form of affection. Her rationale was that her children would become self-reliant and emotionally independent. Cold-Hearted Cold-Hearted Lacking a mother's affection as well as a father, Gilman tried to overcome her lonliness at the public library and spent much of her time studying. She focused mostly on ancient civilizations and philosophy and historical development. As she had a limited formal education, she was mostly self-educated. Education Education Gilman supported herself financially by being a tutor and a trade card artist. In 1883, she published her first works of writing by sending her poems and articles to a variety of journals. During this time, Charles Walter Stetson--a handsome aspiring artist--courted her intensely. By 1884, she consented to marry him. First Marriage First Marriage Three months into their marriage, Gilman learned that she was pregnant. During this time, she began to suffer from depression. After the birth of her daughter--Katharine--Gilman became so overwhelmed with depression that she sought medical help. She saw Dr. Silas Weir Mitchell who favored the rest cure as a treatment for nervous disorders. Motherhood Motherhood The rest cure usually lasted six to eight weeks. It involved isolation from friends and family (potential toxic social atmospheres). Patients were put on a fatty, milk-based diet and force-fed if necessary. The cure also enforced bed rest, so the patients were reduced to the dependency of an infant. Nurses cleaned them, fed them, and turned them over to avoid bedsores. Doctors used massage and electrotherapy to maintain muscle tone. In some cases, patients were prohibited from talking, reading, writing, and even sewing. Later, feminists scholars argued that this cure reinforced an archaic and oppresive notion that women should submit to male authority--unquestionably--because it was good for their health. The Rest Cure The Rest Cure In 1888, Gilman separated from her husband and moved to California. In 1894, they got divorced, and Gilman sent her daughter to be raised by Stetson and his new wife. The End of a Marriage The End of a Marriage During her time in California, she became extremely involved and active in social reform--particularly with the suffrage movement. She published her first volume of poems--In This World--in 1893, which brought her public recognition. Her other book, Women and Economics, won her international recognition in 1898. On Her Own On Her Own After the death of her mother, Gilman returned to the East Coast and married her first cousin, Houghton Gilman, in 1900. This marriage was more successful than her first, and she continued to wrire numerous works. Later Life Later Life Gilman was diagnosed with incurable breast cancer in 1932; and in 1934, her husband died suddenly. After her husband's death, she moved back to California to be closer to her daughter. However, in 1935, Gilman committed suicide by overdosing on chloroform stating, in her suicide note that she "chose chloroform over cancer."

Transcript: The Yellow Wallpaper Collage By: Ryne Swanson How are Gender Roles Diffrent From The Story to Gender Roles in Today's Society Gender Roles Gender Roles in the Story Gender Roles in the Past In the story "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, we see how gender roles were depicted durring the time she wrote this story in 1892. The quote from the story states "Sometimes I think there are a great many women behind, and sometimes only one, and she crawls around fast, and her crawling shakes it all over."(Gilman) This quote we can use to saw that in this area in time women did not get a say in anything and the husband or the man made those dessions. Any woman who dares try and change that is quickley scilenced becuase in this time period men made the decissons and women did not Second Quote Analyisis The secind quote from "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman shows more about gender roles in the past. "She is a perfect and enthusiastic housekeeper, and hopes for no better profession. I verily believe she thinks it is the writing which made me sick!" (Gilman). This quote shows that women were only seen as doing one rolein a marriage, housekeeping. The man would go and work while the women would prepare the house and dinner before he returned. If they wanted to presue something outside the house was demed unacceptable. The reason why she thinks this because she thinks that her wrting is making her sick because she believes that anything other than what her husband tells her to do is wrong and we see that idea throughout the story Second Quote How Gender Roles Today And In The Workplace Gender Roles in Today's Society Gender Roles today are way diffrent then they were in the past. They are also controversal in todays society from what makes diffrent activitys to diffrent genders important and even all the way down to what is a man or a woman. But our society still has a outline. Men do more dangerous and bigger jobs like electricans and lawyers. Woman on the other hand work jobs like cook, scretary, and teacher. Those are all just sterotypes however and part of the world dosent like it. Both genders are equal in terms of opprotunity but in some circumstances they are not. The wage gap is an aurgument made by woman saying they are treated unfair in the work place even to social media today where men are telliing women that men are stuguling with mental health and want people to care. The roles have changed as to both men and women can work the same jobs but now were at the point where wmoen are fighting for equal right in workplaces and in senarios like abortion. Gender Roles At Home In todays socitey Gender Roles at home have not changed much. The only real change is more women leaving for the workforce and men now staying at home. Other than that it is the same it just depends on who stays home. You could have the women working and the men watching the house and/or the kids and the other way around. The bigger argument with gender roles is how they are in the work force. Gender Roles At Home How Gender Roles Change And How They Are Connected How Gender Roles Change The quote about the wife in "The Yellow Wallpaper" shows how she thinks writing is the reason she is losing it which refers back to the pictue with the woman holding food for kids and husband becuase she talks about how good the other girl is at being a housewife which not only goes back to the pictue but also the idea of men keeping woman in the same area of what they do and why they do it. The picture that shows that men and women are not equal represents the quote about the woman behind the wall and the one that tries to get out. They realte because at the time men only wanted women in the house and didnt even have simple rights like voting. The ither two pictures represent the opposite ideas of the one they are next to. Gender Roles have changed over the years based on idea shits and what happens in society. I can not judge if they are good or bad but I can say that they change over time and we will see about how they change the more into the future we get.
