Gilman, Charlotte Perkins: Our Androcentric Culture, LIT v.1, 26 January 2009.
Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860–1935)
Our Androcentric Culture, Or The Man Made World (1911)
A liberal feminist text. Rather than considering what is appropriate masculine or feminine behaviour, we should investigate what it is to be human.
“…We have been so taken up with the phenomena of masculinity and femininity, that our common humanity has largely escaped notice. We know we are human, naturally, and are very proud of it; but we do not consider in what our humanness consists; nor how men and women may fall short of it, or overstep its bounds, in continual insistence upon their special differences. It is “manly” to do this; it is “womanly” to do that; but what a human being should do under the circumstances is not thought of.”
We also have some of Ms Gilman’s fiction in our uploads section: “Herland” and “The Yellow Wallpaper”.
