Charlotte Perkins Gilman founded THE FORERUNNER magazine in 1909 and published and edited it over the next seven years until its demise in 1916. Within this forum Gilman continued to explore, explain, and denounce women's and men's roles as prescribed by society. While her novel HERLAND received scant attention when published in 1915, it has been recognized since its first book publication in 1979 as a benchmark of utopian and feminist fiction.
