Exhibit from the National Library of Medicine. From UW Library’s website: “This traveling exhibition explores the role of late nineteenth-century medical and scientific experts in using the idea of female weakness to discourage women from participating in professional, creative and intellectual life. Author and artist Charlotte Perkins Gilman was one of these women, and her numerous writings, including the famous story “The Yellow Wall-Paper” challenged these restrictive social conventions and the medical establishment.” For more information, see the UW Library website.
