In its two seasons, The Handmaid’s Tale has left an indelible mark on the entertainment industry and the nation at large. The politically charged show – based on Margaret Atwood’s novel of the same name – makes a powerful statement about the vulnerability of women’s rights. The show has received the critical acclaim it deserves, too. Both seasons of The Handmaid’s Tale received several Emmy Award nominations, and the show took home the award for outstanding drama series last year. In our current political climate, many will likely be using the upcoming holiday to make a powerful political statement.
