THROUGH THE LENSES - "Handmaid's Tale"

"In dystopian 'Handmaid's Tale,' a warning for a new generation not to take rights for granted" PBS NewsHour 4/25/2017


SUMMARY:  America's democracy and Constitution have been replaced by a theocratic autocracy where women have lost their rights and many of them have become property, valued and controlled for the ability to bear children for wealthy families.  That's the story of “The Handmaid's Tale,” a novel that's now a major television miniseries.  Jeffrey Brown talks to author Margaret Atwood and others.
