... one sin for which the penalty is national death, race suicide" (Davis 19). It is no wonder that reproduction in America is grossly stratified, especially when our great leaders reflect and reinforce the racist, eugenic, classist notions of acceptable reproduction.

- The Handmaids Tale - 974 words
The Handmaid's Tale Ruth McDermott November 30, 1998 The creation of Offred, the passive narrator of Margaret Atwoods The Handmaids Tale, was intentional.

Although particular groups may find The Handmaids Tale more enjoyable than others, the p ...
