Charlotte Perkins Gilman is not ordinarily thought of as a humorist, but her feminist utopia, Herland, is a very funny book. Prominent at the turn of the century as a social critic and lecturer, Gilman was best known as the author of Women and Economics, a serious and sweeping analysis of the history, sociology, and political economy of the female sex; and The Yellow Wallpaper, a chilling and largely autobiographical study of insanity. She used the marginality forced upon her as a woman in Victorian America to shape a distinctly woman’s humor. Herland is an example of Gilman’s playful best.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman's His Religion and Hers is a brave critique of organized religion and the consequences that a male-constructed religion has on everyday life. She suggests that through the development of secular ethics, religion can be directed not to the anticipation of a mythical afterlife, but instead to the transformation of the present. Courageously questioning why 'neither religion, morality, nor ethics has made us good,' she demonstrates the ways in which a male driven ideology has produced a religion focused on death and discourages any attention to the improvement of life on earth. Offering new thoughts that advocate a collective change of view, this volume delves intensively into religion and the influence of gender. Coming generations will welcome this new edition of His Religion and Hers, now with an introduction by noted scholar Michael S. Kimmel.

Everyone should read this book. Written by a woman, before women could vote, published in 1923, she explores the development of human spirituality as influenced by gender norms. It's incredibly well done. Required reading in this world of "religious warfare."

I love love love this book! It has formed the basis for many of my religious and feminist writings. I think that any one could learn a lot from this book but you have to have patience because it does require a lot of time and intellectual energy to get through it. I love it though. I was amazed at the insights and theory and enjoyed following some of them a bit further. Perkins is just a great thinker and writer.
