Search

(1915)


Herland is a utopian novel describing an isolated society composed entirely of women, who reproduce via parthenogenesis (asexual reproduction). The result is an ideal social order: free of war, conflict, and domination. It was first published in monthly installments in 1915 in The Forerunner, a magazine edited and written by Gilman between 1909 and 1916. The sequel, With Her in Ourland was published monthly starting in January 1916.
