Women make up nearly half of the world’s population and they are a significant group of individuals in society. However, they are constantly mistreated by those around them and continue to experience an endless cycle of abuse. Women often fall victim of abuse in the hands of those who perceive them to be insignificant and worthless. The perpetuating cycle of violence that exists only allows more and more women to be susceptible to experiencing any form of abuse. This concept has made its way into cultural and societal norms where the idea of abuse being normal is embedded into the minds of those who abide by traditional ways.
At the end of the store, these secrets are divulged. Whenever Amir lets Hassan get rapped by the bully, Assef, readers realize that Hassan isn’t the person portrayed at the beginning of the book. This is especially shown whenever Amir keeps this as a secret for the ongoing years. If he would have tried to help Hassan, then readers would be able to sympathize toward both characters, not just Hasan. The reasoning behind Amir’s innocence in the situation is because he was “scared,” he didn’t want to “confront” Assef.
I think torture is such a serious subject that people would rather not acknowledge it .As it is such an inhumane subject the very discussion let alone act is enough to cause many to ignore the issue or even delegate it to someone below them with less power. As a result of this when it comes to the discussion of torture many not involved in government groups that conduct torture are totally opposed to the idea while those in the groups are usually split on the idea of whether or not torture should be used.

For example, many women in Gilead agree with the government and help to keep other women in check. One would blame the Commander’s Wife for not showing team spirit to her gender and rebelling against Gilead, without understanding that this is actually an expectation, since it believes that gender is the most important trait, while really it is just a smaller version of the anti-individual totalitarianism of Gilead. Atwood may be reminding her readers that women by tradition have served to impose the rules of a patriarchal society, from the manner of responsibility for the socialization of young girls to the enforcement of adult individualists through mockery or isolation. In a way, The Handmaid’s Tale is about the present as well as the future, suggesting that until there are large changes in women’s and men’s understanding and social way, society will continue to be in danger of this kind of
