Charlotte Perkins Gilman's The Home is a scathing attack on the domesticity of women in the early 20th century. Her central argument, that "the economic independence and specialization of women is essential to the improvement of marriage, motherhood, domestic industry, and racial improvement" resonates in this work. Throughout, she maintains that the liberation of women―and of children and of men, for that matter―requires getting women out of the house, both practically and ideologically. AltaMira Press is proud to reprint this provocative work and introduce Charlotte Perkins Gilman to a new generation of students and feminist scholars.

About the Author:

Charlotte Perkins Gilman was a prolific American writer and feminist theorist who wrote over two hundred short stories, including 'The Yellow Wallpaper' (1892), a stark account of a young mother's mental breakdown. Michael S. Kimmel is Professor of Sociology at State University of New York, Stony Brook.

Review:

What makes this book different is its temporal context. . . . I became fascinated by the description of a woman's lifeworld within a 'typical' middle-class, American home of only 100 years ago. . . . The Home: Its Work and Influence can be considered a classic in gender studies. (Valerie Wright-St. Clair, Auckland University of technology Journal Of Occupational Studies, Nov. 2003, Vol. 10, No. 3)
