Abstract

This study attempts to investigate the idea of feminism in Charlotte Perkins Gilman's short story, The Yellow Wallpaper, which examines the issue of female oppression and loneliness from a feminist standpoint. Textual analysis is the method used in this qualitative investigation. The protagonist, a woman, is kept in her room and given the treatment by her physician husband. She is prohibited from participating in things that might inspire her creativity and imagination, which makes her feel alone and isolated.Gilman examines the patriarchal society of her time from the lens of the protagonist.She came to a painting and sensed that it depicted the strangling of a woman. She attempted to crawl out of the painting, but she was unsuccessful. She reflects herself indirectly in the painting's imprisoned woman. She is the real-life embodiment of the downtrodden person caught in the web of patriarchy. The story's yellow wallpaper represents the restrictions placed on the protagonist and other women of her day, emphasizing the tyranny and control of patriarchy they experience. Finally, using a feminist perspective, The Yellow Wallpaper depicts the isolation and loneliness that women experience in a patriarchal society.
