The incredible story of America’s worst nightmare, a dystopia created by a nuclear war and mutilation of the government elites, leaves society in a puritan state where everyone is sterile due to the radioactivity from the bombing.
Margaret Atwood’s novel The Handmaid’s Tale revolutionizes the term “feminist” with her compelling story of a middle aged woman who is captured when trying to cross the border into Canada, then being enslaved as a “Handmaid.” These handmaids were potentially the only fertile women left, so they were used for the sole purpose of breeding children for the “Commanders” of their new society.
This incredible story captivates the reader’s deepest emotions with the eagerness and sadness of a woman, known as “offred,” who undergoes terrifying obstacles, finding herself in the midst of a deadly love triangle.
After reading Atwood’s story, your life will be forever altered to understand the true values and concepts of equality amongst the genders. Using her creative story, she was able to set the reader up to figure out their own morality of respect and value.
