From Gilman’s characterization of women as virtual economic, social, and sexual slaves who were dependent on men for everything from food to friendship to protection, to her call for women to free themselves from these shackles, Women and Economics electrified Victorian readers. It remains a foundational work of feminist theory, and essential reading for anyone wishing to understand women's struggle for full and self-determined personhood.
