Human Work represents the first ground breaking analysis by noted feminist Charlotte Perkins Gilman on the equal importance of work in the lives of men and women. Gilman asserts that men created an economic dependence that has prevented women from success in the workplace. Introduced by noted scholars Michael Kimmel and Mary Moynihan, this is necessary reading for anyone interested in power and gender structures in the workplace.
