A Quick Handmaid’s Tale Overview

handmaidstale

The Handmaid’s Tale is a story of cruelty, religious dogma and hate run amok by people who have taken scripture out of context and to promote ignorance of one gender to advance the cause of another. It is about the subjugation of women who are reduced to walking wombs to save the bacon of men who have done horrible things to the world. Today we seem to be inching closer to that reality by men who want to assert their dominance over people who are not like them. It is disturbing in every way possible. I wouldn’t want to live in such a world as Gilead. Tonight I’m wrapping up season two and its been a horrific ride.
