Samira Wiley: The Handmaid's Tale Embodies Feminism

May 18, 2017, 03:16 AM

There is no question in Samira Wiley's mind that Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale is a feminist story.

To Wiley, who appears in Hulu's adaptation as Moira, Atwood's dystopian tale "embodies everything to me that the word feminism means." Wiley's view contrasts with recent statements from Elisabeth Moss, who plays lead character Offred, and from Atwood herself.
