The Handmaid's Tale

The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood Another one of Margaret Atwood's dystopian tales, this times in a future where society is extremely divided into different strata and roles are imposed according to attributes. The handmaids dress in red as an indication of their fertility, as like in A Brave New World, those in high social classes (women in this case) have become infertile. A horrifying exploration of the role of women taken to extreme, this is an allegory that pushes boundaries.
