    Charlotte Perkins Gilman was a remarkable woman and utopian feminist ahead of her time Powerful thought provoking and profoundly illuminating Gilman developed seven short feminist narratives that seek to empower women and minorities oppressed by our patriarchal society Highly polemical gripping and infused with relevant themes she deconstructs the ideological subversion of both genders against the status quo promotes civil rights and economic independence and confronts the notion of toxic masculinity by giving a resonant voice that sends forth ripples even up to our present times The Yellow Wallpaper 45 stars You see he does not believe I am sick And what can one do? A harrowing narrative that chronicles a woman's descent into utter madness The rest cure is prescribed as a preferential treatment for the mental aberration of our narrator What happens thereafter is an unutterable horror as our narrator slowly loses her grip on reality dives into the existential abyss of insanity and finally fuses with the yellow wallpaper being one and the sameThree Thanksgivings 4 stars I don’t see that you’re over run with club women mother said JeannieIt’s Thanksgiving you know they’re all at home I hope they are all as happy as thankful for their homes as I am for mine said Mrs Morrison Mrs Morrison has spent most of her life living in her father's house Now a widow she wants to honour her father's legacy by keeping and maintaining the house However having a mortgage tied to someone who she isn't fond of is a total nightmare If she cannot pay the interest as well as the principal in two years time she would be forced to live with one of her children or marry the pertinacious man With three thanksgivings she realizes something and pursues economic freedom by devising a sound strategic plan Just don't forget that perfect roasted turkey mashed potatoes pumpkin pie roasted vegetables and other side dishes as well as that old fashioned pecan pie and even a delightful snickerdoodle The Cottagette 5 stars It is not true always my dear said he that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach at least it’s not the only way Ladies if you can find someone like Ford Matthews by all means and good heavens marry the damn man Or else I would Well that is if he is gay Turned 4 stars Some men can love two women at one time This was not love Infidelity with a little twist That's all I have to say lest I spoil everythingMaking a Change 35 stars Don’t say a thing dearie — I understand I understand I tell you Oh my dear girl — my precious daughter We haven’t been half good enough to you Frank and I But cheer up now — I’ve got the loveliest plan to tell you about We are going to make a change Listen now A wife husband mother in law and a newborn baby in one house The wife decides to give up her passion for music to tend to the needs of her family Tied to domestic drudgery the wife does something unthinkable Luckily her mother in law rescues her and devises a plan that would make everyone in that little home happy If I Were A Man 5 starsA look at gender through the eyes of a man but with the empathy of a woman Much like Beyoncé's If I Were a Boy an ode to female empowerment As for Mother Eve — I wasn’t there and can’t deny the story but I will say this If she brought evil into the world we men have had the lion’s share of keeping it going ever since — how about that? Mr Peebles' Heart 6 starsMy personal favourite A delightful and entertaining read about a 50 year old man a current store owner who believed in his younger years that it was his sole duty and responsibility to supply for the needs of his entire family A martyr he definitely is He takes it upon himself to be a good provider and breadwinner for everyone he loves — because society dictates it and anything that is not within the masculine norm is frowned upon He might sound happy and content but the story tells us otherwise He also loves music and travelling but his wife disapproves of it One day at an opportune moment his doctor gives him a leisurely trip that he will forever and gratefully remember A story that challenges hegemonic masculinity Why not? Why not be your own man for once in your life — do what you want to — not what other people want you to?
