by the commanders wife. The whole idea of hers was to live in a society like the old days where she could stay home and have babies. She talked her husband into the idea and they created the party that took over the government and enacted the new laws.
Many years later when she couldn't have kids and had to be one of the ladies watching her husband rape a women to try and give her a kid then blamed it on the women when they didn't, finally finding out it was him he couldn't have kids so they used an employee and forced their handmaid to be with him.
But my point is it was all HER idea in the beginning, a woman's idea!
When she finally gets out to Canada you can tell she wants her independence back and she was thinking what the fu*k did I start?
Makes me think of republican women that go along with so many of the ideas that keep women down.
