This masterpiece of social science explores the evolution of women's economic reliance on men. Gilman discusses the limitations in intellectual and emotional development inherent in this convention and its injurious effects on both sexes. A classic of feminist theory, this work still resonates a century after its initial publication.

From the Back Cover:

Women and Economics is Gilman's most original and famous work of nonfiction. In it she examines the origins of women's subordination and its function in society. Woman, she argues, makes a living by marriage - not by the work she does - and thus man becomes her economic environment. As a consequence, her "female" attributes dominate her "human" qualities because they determine her survival. Gilman's thesis challenges both biological and theological arguments about women's innate passivity and defies the virtual exclusion of women in classical sociological theory. If women are to fully engage in domestic and public life, Gilman contends that their emancipation requires both economic participation and adequate child care. Gilman's argument in this classic work resonates today, as women continue their struggle to find a meaningful independent identity and to balance work and family. Here reprinted with a new introduction, Women and Economics belongs on the same shelf as works by Betty Friedan, Simone de Beauvoir, and other pioneering feminists.

Book Description Dover Publications Inc., United States, 1997. Paperback. Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Author of the well-known short story The Yellow Wallpaper and other important fiction, Charlotte Perkins [Stetson] Gilman (1860-1935) was an ardent advocate of women s rights. In this classic feminist treatise, Gilman argues that women s dependence on men for their livelihood results in a state of arrested intellectual and emotional development deleterious to both genders. Moreover, she explains, such reliance causes shortcomings in the human species as a whole. A landmark in feminist theory, Women and Economics was translated into seven languages and hailed as the Bible of the women s movement. Although its author s influence declined in the post-World War I period, modern feminists have returned to her still-incisive observations on the role and status of women, establishing Gilman as an important early figure in the struggle for women s economic and social rights. Now Gilman s masterpiece of feminist theory is again available in this modestly priced edition, ready to stimulate and inspire a new generation of women and men engaged in the ongoing fight for gender equality.
