Year 13 Handmaid’s Tale 2017 reader response – follow this link!

Dear lovely Year 13s,

I came across this article online last night which provides an excellent insight into 2017 reader response to The Handmaid’s Tale. I think it’s very quotable and also helps to succinctly summarise some of the key parallels between current American politics and aspects of Gilead 🙂 Exciting stuff! Here is the link (below). Unfortunately it won’t work in school due to filtering, most likely because of a particular word that appears in the article (nothing especially bad – see if you can spot it ;)) – but you can access and print this at home and add to your notes. Don’t forget to make a note of the name of the writer when learning quotations for exam!
