This episode Alicia and I jumps on the Hulu bandwagon and watches the new series "The Handmaid's Tale" based on the book by Margaret Atwood (a Canadian author). A crazy alternative society that enslaves women and have a certain set of women used to bear children for the rich oligarchy. We wanted to see this series because of the strangely relevant way we see this can happen due to the disrespect women are receiving from men in power. Whether its the business sector or the government.
Based on the best-selling novel by Margaret Atwood, this series is set in Gilead, a totalitarian society in what used to be part of the United States. Gilead is ruled by a fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state, and is faced with environmental disasters and a plummeting birth rate. In a desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world, the few remaining fertile women are forced into sexual servitude. One of these women, Offred, is determined to survive the terrifying world she lives in, and find the daughter that was taken from her.
