Shirley Chisholm once said “The emotional, sexual and psychological stereotyping of females begins when the doctor says, “It’s a girl”. “The Yellow Wallpaper”, written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, depicts the social norm in the 19th century when women were thought of as lower intellectual beings who had “hysterical tendencies” and therefore not capable of making good decisions for themselves.
