In Hulu’s multi-Emmy-winning THE HANDMAID’S TALE, based on Margaret Atwood’s novel, most of America has been taken over by Gilead. Gilead is a far-right religious sect which dictates that the few remaining fertile women be forced to procreate for powerful men and their presumed-sterile wives (when couples can’t conceive, it is always deemed to be the woman’s fault). The fertile women, known as handmaids, are forcibly taught what is expected of them by women known as aunts. Aunt Lydia is an especially formidable example, played by Ann Dowd, who won an Emmy for her performance in THE HANDMAID’S TALE’s first […]Read On »
