Charlotte Perkins Gilman sent a copy of "The Yellow Wallpaper" to the physician who had prescribed her a "rest cure." He subsequently altered the way he treated women for depression.

Gilman divorced her husband Charles Stetson in 1894. Divorce, we might point out, was very rare at this period in time.

Gilman’s second marriage was to her first cousin, George Houghton Gilman.

Gilman committed suicide in 1935 after being diagnosed with inoperable breast cancer.
