Review quote

'Herland is utopia with a smlle, a gentle, witty version of what women can be. As fascinating to women for what it omits entirely as for what it discovers and invents for us, it is a fast and invigorating read' Marge Plercy; 'Raise three cheers and stop for a good read... a treat awaits you' Cosmopolitan; 'Herland is a pure delight' Susan Brownmiller

About Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) is recognised one of the great feminist writers. She wrote on history, anthropology, ethics, and philosophy, as well as producing volumes of poetry, novels, satire and social commentary. Her short stories, most memorably 'The Yellow Wallpaper', are set texts worldwide and in 1898 she wrote Women and Economics, which is now recognised as a feminist landmark. She was inducted into the American National Women's Hall of Fame in 1994.
