Hulu’s new series based on the dystopian novel by Margaret Atwood has been keeping me up at night because of its portrayal of everyday sexism
When Hulu released a trailer for their adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian classic The Handmaid’s Tale, some conservatives didn’t realize the series was based on a decades-old novel – they thought it was created in response to Trump’s presidential win.
