Unfit June and the rest of the Handmaids shun Ofmatthew, and both are pushed to their limit at the hands of Aunt Lydia. So you can have bad iterations and you can also have the iteration in which people have got too much power and then start abusing it.
But that is human behavior, so you can't lay it down to religion. You can find the same in any power situation, such as politics or ideologies that purport to be atheist.
Need I mention the former Soviet Union? So it is not a question of religion making people behave badly.
It is a question of human beings getting power and then wanting more of it. In the same vein, Atwood also declared that "In the real world today, some religious groups are leading movements for the protection of vulnerable groups, including women.
In her interviews, Atwood offers up Afghanistan as an example of a religious theocracy forcing women out of the public sphere and into their homes, as in Gilead.
The Republic of Gilead struggles with infertility, making Offred's services as a Handmaid vital to producing children and thus reproducing the society.
Handmaids themselves are "untouchable", but their ability to signify status is equated to that of slaves or servants throughout history.
Atwood's strong stance on environmental issues and their negative consequences for our society has presented itself in other works such as her MaddAddam trilogy, and refers back to her growing up with biologists and her own scientific curiosity.
Offred is the protagonist and narrator who takes the readers through life in Gilead. She was labeled a "wanton woman" when Gilead was established because she had married a man who was divorced.
All divorces were nullified by the new government, meaning her husband was now considered still married to his first wife, making Offred an adulteress.
In trying to escape Gilead, she was separated from her husband and daughter. She is part of the first generation of Gilead's women, those who remember pre-Gilead times.
Proved fertile, she is considered an important commodity and has been placed as a "handmaid" in the home of "the Commander" and his wife Serena Joy, to bear a child for them Serena Joy is believed to be infertile.
Offred is a slave name that describes her function: she is "of Fred" i. In the novel, Offred says that she is not a concubine, but a tool; a "two legged womb".
The Handmaids' names say nothing about who the women really are; their only identity is as the Commander's property. In Atwood's original novel, Offred's real name is never revealed; however, Volker Schlöndorff 's film adaptation gave Offred the real name Kate,  while the television series gave her the real name June.
The women in training to be Handmaids whisper names across their beds at night. The names are "Alma. June," and all are later accounted for except June.
In addition, one of the Aunts tells the handmaids-in-training to stop "mooning and June-ing". As "Mayday" is the name of the Gilead resistance, June could be an invention by the protagonist.
The Nunavut conference covered in the epilogue takes place in June. The Commander says that he was a scientist and was previously involved in something similar to market research before Gilead's inception.
Later, it is hypothesized, but not confirmed, that he might have been one of the architects of the Republic and its laws.
Presumably, his first name is "Fred", though that, too, may be a pseudonym. He engages in forbidden intellectual pursuits with Offred, such as playing Scrabble , and introduces her to a secret club that serves as a brothel for high-ranking officers.
Offred learns that the Commander carried on a similar relationship with his previous handmaid, who later killed herself when his wife found out.
In the epilogue, Professor Peixoto speculates that one of two figures, both instrumental in the establishment of Gilead, may have been the Commander, based on the name "Fred".
It is his belief that the Commander was a man named Frederick R. Waterford who was killed in a purge shortly after Offred was taken away, charged with harbouring an enemy agent.
Serena Joy is a former televangelist and the Commander's wife in the fundamentalist theonomy. The state took away her power and public recognition, and tries to hide her past as a television figure.
Offred identifies Serena Joy by recalling seeing her on TV when she was a little girl early on Saturday mornings while waiting for the cartoons to air.
Believed to be sterile although the suggestion is made that the Commander is sterile, Gileadean laws attribute sterility only to women , she is forced to accept that he has use of a handmaid.
She resents having to take part in "The Ceremony", a monthly fertility ritual. She strikes a deal with Offred to arrange for her to have sex with Nick in order to become pregnant.
According to Professor Pieixoto in the epilogue, "Serena Joy" or "Pam" are pseudonyms; the character's real name is implied to be Thelma.
Ofglen is a neighbour of Offred's and a fellow Handmaid. She is partnered with Offred to do the daily shopping. Handmaids are never alone and are expected to police each other's behaviour.
Ofglen is a member of the Mayday resistance. In contrast to Offred, she is daring. She knocks out a Mayday spy who is to be tortured and killed in order to save him the pain of a violent death.
Offred is told that when Ofglen vanishes, it is because she has committed suicide before the government can take her into custody due to her membership in the resistance, possibly to avoid giving away any information.
A new handmaid, also called Ofglen, takes Ofglen's place, and is assigned as Offred's shopping partner. She threatens Offred against any thought of resistance.
In addition, she breaks protocol by telling her what happened to the first Ofglen. Nick is the Commander's chauffeur, who lives above the garage.
By Serena Joy's arrangement, he and Offred start a sexual relationship to increase her chance of getting pregnant. If she were unable to bear the Commander a child, she would be declared sterile and shipped to the ecological wastelands of the Colonies.
Offred begins to develop feelings for him. Nick is an ambiguous character, and Offred does not know if he is a party loyalist or part of the resistance, though he identifies himself as the latter.
The epilogue suggests that he really was part of the resistance, and aided Offred in escaping the Commander's house.
Moira has been a close friend of Offred's since college. In the novel, their relationship represents a female friendship that the Republic of Gilead tries to block.
A lesbian, she has resisted the homophobia of Gilead society. Moira is taken to be a Handmaid soon after Offred.
She escapes by stealing an Aunt's pass and clothes, but Offred later finds her working as a prostitute in a party-run brothel.
She was caught and chose the brothel rather than to be sent to the Colonies. Moira exemplifies defiance against Gilead by rejecting every value that is forced onto the citizens.
Luke was Offred's husband before the formation of Gilead, having divorced his first wife to marry her. Under Gilead, all divorces were retroactively nullified, resulting in Offred being considered an adulteress and their daughter illegitimate.
Offred was forced to become a Handmaid and her daughter was given to a loyalist family. Since their attempt to escape to Canada, Offred has heard nothing of Luke.
She wavers between believing him dead or imprisoned. Pieixoto is the "co-discoverer [with Professor Knotly Wade] of Offred's tapes".
In his presentation at an academic conference, he talks about "the 'Problems of Authentication in Reference to The Handmaid's Tale ' ".
The novel is set in an indeterminate dystopian future, speculated to be around the year ,  with a fundamentalist theonomy ruling the territory of what had been the United States but is now the Republic of Gilead.
Individuals are segregated by categories and dressed according to their social functions. Complex dress codes play a key role in imposing social control within the new society and serve to distinguish people by sex, occupation, and caste.
The action takes place in what once was the Harvard Square neighbourhood of Cambridge, Massachusetts ;   Atwood studied at Radcliffe College , located in this area.
In Gilead, the bodies of fertile women are politicized and controlled. The North American population is falling as more men and women become infertile though in Gilead, legally, it is only women who can be the cause of infertility.
Gilead's treatment of women is based upon a fundamentalist interpretation of the Bible, meaning that women are the property of and subordinate to their husband, father, or head of household.

The site's critical consensus reads, "Haunting and vivid, The Handmaid's Tale is an endlessly engrossing adaptation of Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel that's anchored by a terrific central performance from Elisabeth Moss.
Daniel Fienberg of The Hollywood Reporter called it "probably the spring's best new show". There was much debate on whether parallels could be drawn between the series and by extension, the book it is based on and American society during the Presidency of Donald Trump.
The site's critical consensus reads, "Beautifully shot but dishearteningly relevant, The Handmaid's Tale centers its sophomore season tightly around its compelling cast of characters, making room for broader social commentary through more intimate lenses.
However, other critics perceived the second season's depictions of violence as excessive. Sophie Gilbert wrote: "There came a point during the first episode where, for me, it became too much.
It all feels so gratuitous, like a beating that never ends. The site's critical consensus reads, " The Handmaid's Tale ' s third season reins in its horrors and inspires hope that revolution really is possible — if only the story would stop spinning its wheels and get to it already.
Kelly Lawler of USA Today gave it a positive review, scoring it three out of four stars. She claimed it is an improvement over the second season, "that rights many — though definitely not all — of Season 2's wrongs.
But Handmaid's regains its footing by setting off on a new path". Daniel Fienberg of The Hollywood Reporter wrote a generally positive review, praising Elisabeth Moss's performance and the cinematography, but criticized the plot "that has become frustratingly repetitive".
Overall, he wrote, "Still occasionally powerful, but rarely as provocative". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. American television series.

Now, in the era of the Trump administration, liberal TV watchers find a perverse sort of comfort in the horrific alternate reality of the Republic of Gilead, where a cabal of theonomist Christians have established a totalitarian state that forbids women to read, sets a secret police to watch their every move and deploys them as slave-concubines to childless elites.
