Challenges and Bans of 'The Handmaid's Tale' Aren't Really Just About Sex or Profanity. In one of the many powerful scenes in Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, the narrator lies in bed one night and recalls a time she was at a park with her mother and people were burning books.

Ursula Le Guin has a very good thing on anger, in which she says anger is a tool. So you have a tool, it’s a powerful tool and you use it, but then there's the hard slog of making real changes. So in what areas are those real changes going to be made? A good place to start would be the law. The whole angry ‘name, shame and blame’ process only works with people who are in the public eye and have something to lose by loss of public favour. Which is where the law comes in. But in all of this, you need to go back to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the companion document that has to do with women, and see what the rights are actually supposed to be. The other area that we have been hearing a lot about is social behaviour: what is supposed to go on, what is expected to go on, in the area we could loosely call dating.

Et de deux ! Déjà lauréate en 2000 pour Le tueur aveugle, Margaret Atwood décroche un nouveau Booker Prize, prestigieux prix littéraire britannique. Alors que son roman La Servante écarlate était nommé en 1986, c'est sa suite, Les Testaments, qui est récompensée.

Hulu didn’t plan for the release to time perfectly around a series of anti-abortion bills popping up around state houses around the country. Nor did showrunner Bruce Miller — or even author Margaret Atwood, for that matter. But here we are. The third season of the dystopian drama, which is now streaming, picks up immediately after last season’s finale, which saw June (Elisabeth Moss) hand her newborn off to the fleeing Emily (Alexis Bledel) and choose instead to stay in Gilead and fight, or resist, or something. The decision, no longer being dictated by Atwood’s book, was controversial. ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ inspires a provocative public art piece on the High Line. Margaret Atwood’s 1985 dystopic novel The Handmaid’s Tale, about life (and revolt) in an authoritarian, theocratic United States of the future, is now the subject of an adaptation that premiered yesterday on Hulu.
Starring Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss and Orange Is the New Black’s Samira Wiley, the seemingly all-too-timely series is, as Vox’s Todd VanDerWerff writes, not “just a show about now; it’s a show about always.” But for those who may not be familiar with the source material—and truly, this is a case where reading the book ahead of watching the series is highly encouraged—there’s a new public art piece on the High Line that hopes to change that.
