Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Doing research & just discovered this quote by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, better known today for her short story “The Yellow Wallpaper,” but for my purposes more important is her suffrage activism, highly influential book “Women and Economics,” and suffrage poetry. Here’s the quote, still relevant today, I think: “To swallow and follow, whether old doctrines or new propaganda, is a weakness still dominating the human mind.”
