Feminist Dystopias
Kathryn interviews journalist Bina Shah, Pakistan’s internationally renowned author of “Before She Sleeps: A Novel”. Conjuring Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, Shah takes the parable of women selected for breeding to a terrifying new level. In her dystopian thriller, women in the Middle East and Asia have had their numbers drastically reduced by war, gender selection and disease. The consequence is that women must take multiple husbands in order to produce more female children. Not all women agree to submit.
