"The Yellow Wallpaper" is an editorial partially inspired by the short story of the same name by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. It is a commentary on the social norms and constructs that have been placed on women for thousands of years. "The Yellow Wallpaper" depicts women disregarding and playing along with stereotypes in order to portray how women can cook, clean, etc., but how they do not need to do so and how it does not define them as women. Society makes women feel as if they need to abide to norms and constructs, but that should not be the case. Women can and should do whatever the fuck they want. Gender should not be a preventative factor.
