In a post-apocalyptic world where most of the populous has become sterile, women who are able to give birth have become rare. But instead of being able to use this to their advantage, they have become breeding stock to the wealthy and powerful. Written by Margaret Atwood in 1985, The Handmaid's Tale is a terryfiying look at a future where women have lost almost all rights, even to those over their own bodies. We discuss the implications this would have on our world and of course ask that important question, "could this really happen?" We also announce our next book for July: Unstoppable by Bill Nye.
