Summary
“Don't let the bastards grind you down.”

Complacency: Is that how we lived, then? But we lived as usual. Everyone does, most of the time. Whatever is going on is as usual. Even this is as usual, now. We lived, as usual, by ignoring. Ignoring isn’t the same as ignorance, you have to work at it. Nothing changes instantly: in a gradually heating bathtub you’d be boiled to death before you knew it.

Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale paints a picture of a dystopian society named the Republic of Gilead, where a bunch of religion-driven fascists take complete control and resort to unethical means to get what they want.  In order to increase the number of white population, new laws are set which deprive the women in Gilead, of their rights and reduce their roles to mothers and servants.
