"Called by Aileen Kraditor `the most influential woman thinker in the pre-World War I generation in the United States' Charlotte Perkins Gilman combined socialism and feminism to provide a coherent theory of women's oppression, and offered intellectual backing for the movement for women's rights... Out of her lectures came the book Women and Economics (1898) which made her famous overnight"[Tuttle, Encyclopaedia of Feminism p. 126]. She is best remembered, however, for the The Yellow Wall-Paper . NAW: Beginning in 1909 she wrote, edited and published her own monthly magazine. This remarkable undertaking contained works of fiction (published serially), editorials, news, and poems, all on the position of women and the need for social reorganization. With less than a thousand subscribers, it was never a financial success and Mrs. Gilman reluctantly brought it to a close in 1916, estimating that the writing that she had done for it would have filled 28 long books. This contains a combination of fiction and non-fiction with articles.
