Commemorative postage stamps are nice, but perhaps a more fitting tribute would be an ALA poster . Like Eaton, when I look at that image of Marilyn hunched over James Joyce’s Ulysses (or kicking back reading Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass ) , I don’t see someone trying to pass herself off as something she’s not. I see a high school dropout caught in the act of educating herself. If I saw it taped to a library shelf emblazoned with the word “READ,” I might just summon the resolve to take a stab at Ulysses myself. (I know how it ends, but that’s about it.)
The war showed conclusively that, by the scientific organisation of production, it is possible to keep modern populations in fair comfort on a small part of the working capacity of the modern world. If, at the end of the war, the scientific organization, which had been created in order to liberate men for fighting and munition work, had been preserved, and the hours of work had been cut down to four, all would have been well. Instead of that the old chaos was restored, those whose work was demanded were made to work long hours, and the rest were left to starve as unemployed.
In 1903 she wrote one of her most critically acclaimed books, The Home: Its Work and Influence , which expanded upon Women and Economics , proposing that women are oppressed in their home and that the environment in which they live needs to be modified in order to be healthy for their mental states. In between traveling and writing, her career as a literary figure was secured.  From 1909 to 1916 Gilman single-handedly wrote and edited her own magazine, The Forerunner , in which much of her fiction appeared. By presenting material in her magazine that would "stimulate thought", "arouse hope, courage and impatience", and "express ideas which need a special medium", she aimed to go against the mainstream media which was overly sensational.  Over seven years and two months the magazine produced eighty-six issues, each twenty eight pages long. The magazine had nearly 1,500 subscribers and featured such serialized works as What Diantha Did (1910), The Crux (1911), Moving the Mountain (1911), and Herland . The Forerunner has been cited as being "perhaps the greatest literary accomplishment of her long career".  After its seven years, she wrote hundreds of articles which were submitted to the Louisville Herald , The Baltimore Sun , and the Buffalo Evening News . Her autobiography, The Living of Charlotte Perkins Gilman , which she began to write in 1925, appeared posthumously in 1935.
