The Yellow Wallpaper
I'm glad i read a bit of biography on Charlotte before finishing the story - it is so impressive that she wrote this in that era and was as strong in her beliefs to be able to move forward on so many issues. This story was very helpful in that time to show that women should not be stuck in a room all day but also needed mental stimulation - her quote “There is no female mind. The brain is not an organ of sex. Might as well speak of a female liver.” was so advanced then.
