內容簡介


What would happen if society was run by women? In Herland Charlotte Perkins Gilman imagines the result.

When three American men discover a community of women, living in perfect isolation in the Amazon, they decide there simply must be men somewhere. How could these women survive without man's knowledge, experience and strength, not to mention reproductive power? But what they have found is a civilisation free from disease, poverty and the weight of tradition. All alone, the women have created a society of calm and prosperity, a feminist utopia that dares to threaten the very concept of male superiority.

CHARLOTTE PERKINS GILMAN
CHARLOTTE PERKINS GILMAN was born in 1860 in Connecticut. She was a feminist and journalist and author of a number of fiction and non-fiction works. These include Women and Economics (1898), Concerning Children (1900), The Home: Its Work and Influence (1903) and Herland (1915). She is best remembered for her short story 'The Yellow Wallpaper' which describes the descent of a woman into madness following a 'rest cure'. Unconventional in many ways, Gilman's life included two marriages and separation from her nine-year-old daughter, who she sent to live with her ex-husband and his new wife. She was a Suffragette, a public speaker on social issues and the editor of a number of literary magazines during her career. In 1932, Gilman was diagnosed with incurable breast cancer and, as an advocate of euthanasia, she took the decision to commit suicide. She did this on August 17, 1935 by taking an overdose of chloroform.
