WHAT EVER so, one day I was at Costco on an errand for my boss and there in the book section this book stared at me from the pile. From my cart, to my car, to the couch on my three season porch this book gave me the creeps but I couldn't not read it. Not surprisingly, the 295 pages of HMT took me much longer to read than it takes me to read other books of this length.
After every chapter I had to walk away and do something else to rest and restore my psyche.
Reading this story through the eyes of the character Offred my mind had trouble keeping the story on the pages, I felt all of the injustices really intensely. The whole time I was reading I wanted it to stop, the writing style isn't exactly my favorite but the content was so real to me that empathy just poured out of me and the read was felt by every fiber of my body.
This book, this show, and most importantly to me this administration is a wake up call to every woman who enjoys the freedom to shape and reshape her own destiny. This should be a wake up to men who enjoy seeing and benefitting from the results of women shaping and reshaping their own lives. It's time to stand up and fight to move our reality towards a different outcome than depicted in this story.
Please commit to doing something positive for equality, each and every day, some days big things, some days little things. All of those big and little things will add up!
READ THIS! THEN SEE THE MOVIE... BECAUSE WE CAN IGNORE A BOOK, OR A HULU SHOW BUT WE CAN'T IGNORE THE REAL STRUGGLES THAT WOMEN ENDURE AT THE HANDS OF LEGISLATORS THAT DON'T ACKNOWLEDGE OR RESPECT A WOMEN'S RIGHT TO CHOOSE.
LOVE YOU ALL, xoxo,
