  3. This is quite a decent adventure story for it s time and a really interesting read in terms of historical feminism Make sure you keep the time period and the authors background in mind while you read it as some of the views expressed will make you angry Perkins Gilman is very anti men, anti blacks, anti abortion and anti dog As the introduction to the text says, it would be very interesting to see a modern take on this story where the men are less stereotypical and the women less perfect..In This is ...

  6. I definitely recommend getting the edition of Herland with Lindy West s intro It describes the faults and strengths of the novella in a historical context so it s easier to understand how why it was written Perkins Gilman is not the ideal inclusive feminist, but she was ahead of her time and notes some poignant points on sexism and inequality using satire and extreme contrasts between societies That said, her brand of feminism is racist, homophobic, and pro life and it s important to keep tha I definitely recommend getting the edition of Herland with Lindy West s intro It describes the faults and strengths of the novella in a histor...
