Midway Musings – The Handmaid’s Tale

I am halfway through The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. My thoughts so far are that, while written in 1985, as a satire, the laws that are being passed and are attempting to be passed in the world at the moment make the Republic of Gilead seem not as far fetched as one would have hoped. It is a reminder that feminism is a necessity and that as soon as we start to feel that feminism is no longer needed and that we have gained all our rights, we begin to lose them. This book demonstrates that both men and women lose out when women are treated as inferior. #thehandmaidstale #margaretatwood #canadianlit #canadianauthor #republicofgilead #womensrights #feminism #feminist #feministliterature #feministlit #readersofinstagram #reading #reader #read #book #books #booksbooksandmorebooks #bibliophile #bookclub #booklovers #booknerd #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #kalidesautelsreads
