Spent an hour at the library last week, and grabbed a copy of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaiden's Tale. Which I have chosen to read for the New Notions Challenge. Since I have never read any of her books, I've chosen this novel because I like futuristic novels, and I cannot imagine any world where women are not allowed to read.
I seldom like stories where men act superior to women. But this book I will continue because 1 - I've already started it, 2 - it is interesting in its own way, 3 - I need to complete this challenge.
When are we going to ever stop teaching our kids that men are superior to women. In some areas, yes they are, but certainly not in all areas.
You know, one could consider this novel the women's version of 1984 (by George Orwell).
