Supression of Women in The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and The Cult of True Womanhood: 1820-1860 by Barbara Welter

Men were considered to be in control and were often professionals. Women, on the other hand, were supposed to be pious and domestic—the “hostage in the home” (Welter 43). Both Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “the Yellow Wallpaper” and Barbara Welter’s “The Cult of True Womanhood: 1820-1860” reflect the suppressed life that American women were forced to live.
