Based on the 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood, the show is set in the shadow of a patriarchal dystopia named Gilead, founded on what used to be the United States.
Women’s status is reduced to a much lower status than that of men, as they are denied basic rights such as being allowed to read or use money.
