‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ cast says their show isn’t a ‘feminist story’

TwitterFacebook

The Handmaid's Tale presents the story of a near-future patriarchal dystopia, where women are forbidden from reading or using money and are categorized by their supposed virtue and utility as child-bearers. But according to the cast of Hulu's new adaptation of Margaret Atwood's 1985 novel, it's "not a feminist story." 

A panel at the Tribeca Film Festival went in an unexpected direction on Friday night when the cast of the show emphasized that their project was a "human story" rather than a feminist one. Plus, in the Trump era, they said the TV show was about the writing, not politics.
