Margaret Atwood: The Handmaid’s Tale

Who is Margaret Atwood?
The Canadian writer was born in 1939 and is mostly famous for her novel, The handmaid’s tale which was published in 1985. The feminist activist also has poems, short stories and children’s books. She received many acknowledgements including Man Booker Prize.

What is The Handmaid’s Tale about?
The story takes place in a dystopian world called Gilead. Everyone has his or her cast in Gilead and has to follow serious rules. Men are office-holder or soldiers while women are wives, housekeepers or handmaids. A serious disease spread trough Gilead that caused infertility among men which resulted in worshiping fertility. Women who already proved their fruitfulness have to bear children of the commanders.

Why did I like this book?
If I would have to sum this book up I would say it slaps you in the face. And it slaps you very hard. The reason for that is because all the things happening in the book are happening to women every day right now. Having to be silent, not being allowed to use our abilities, being seen as a walking uterus or even being raped… I hope that confronting people with the truth will make them think more about their behavior and decisions. And decisions might lead to change in the future…
This story is about power, hope and at the end, life.

The Handmaid’s Tale series
Hulu released a series based on the book in 2017. A wonderful actress, Elisabeth Moss playes the main role of June Osborne / Offred and Joseph Fiennes is Commander Waterford. Gilmore Girls’ Alexis Bledel also appears in the series playing a heartbreaking role which earned her an Emmy Award. The series currently has 2 seasons but 1 more is coming soon.
