Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references. --- Review, Network Winter 2003: Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s famous short story, “The Yellow Wallpaper” has come to represent contemporary women’s struggles to be understood by their mental health care providers. In Women’s Encounters With the Mental Health Establishment, women write about their personal experiences within various mental health settings. This collection highlights the patriarchal structure of most mental health institutions and practices, and describes how clinicians continue to apply male-derived diagnoses and treatments while ignoring the reality of women’s experiences.
