Through the novel, we can see how Gilead negatively affects the psychology and mentality of the handmaids that makes them to give up to the system and brain washes them. One example is Janine. She is rejecting her victimization and ignorant of her own victimization, Janine looks revolting, pathetic, and distressed. For example, Offered describes Janine as pitiful since she tries to fulfill Gilead’s roles. She describes her how she throws herself into the testifying and feels arrogance in describing her rape story and abortion; subsequently, feels guilty when she had done nothing wrong.
Meanwhile, Penelope’s society has imprisoned her in another planet until she can see herself through the eyes of her fathers. Both governments use manipulative propaganda and the appearance of deliverance, to subjugate Moira and Penelope, resulting in different reactions from the women. Moira, in The Handmaid’s Tale, experienced manipulative propaganda during her time at the Red Center through the lessons taught by the Aunts who enforce the doctrine of Gilead on the Handmaids. The reader learns that Moira resides in an environment in which “The chances [of having a healthy baby] are one in four [and] the air got too full, once of chemicals” (Atwood, 112). The pollution in the air affects the Gilead birth rate and causes birth defects, resulting in the Gilead having to create and manipulate Handmaids through propaganda.
Rachel is gracious because she is kind to her friends and cares about them. Rachel broke up with Andy Evans after she found out that her boyfriend caused her and Melinda to lose their friendship. Melinda and Rachel eventually start to rebuild their friendship. I also believe Rachel’s astrology sign is Libra because some weaknesses of a Libra are indecisive, avoids confrontations, will carry a grudge, and self-pity. Rachel carried a grudge on Melinda for ruining the party, and she avoided confronting her to find out the real reason why Melinda called the cops.
After Edgar is forced, he puts on a different descise. "Nothing" is mentioned as well by being repeated about what can be said by the daughters. The words are echoed and are incorporated by the fool. Mentioning there are nothing left, but the two parts that are given to someone else and him having nothing else. Lear said awful things to his daughter about an evil child.
Another reason of why I believe he died of rabies is because Dr. Benitez reported him having a hard time drinking water or alcohol. In the New York Times article, he states, "In the brief period when he was calm and awake, Poe refused alcohol and could drink water only with great difficulty." This supports the idea that he suffered from hydrophobia, the fear of water. It was painful for Poe to swallow the water, and this suggests that he prefered to drink nothing. Severe Intoxication will not keep someone from being near water, nor can it cause intolerable pain when water is drunk, so his death must be something more than just a story of a belligerent drunk.
Certainly it could be said that others may find the theme to be, how deciding to live a life by yourself can be very sad and can often lead to missed memories, joy, and fun times with friends. While this a reasonable point, it fails to be the best theme of the paper because during the story, the reader finds out Margot is strange, odd, a misfit, and does not have any friends among her classmates. Her classmates actually bully her instead. Although, when Margot got bullied, it was because she hid in her own shadows. When Margot arrived at Venus, joining her new classmates, she talked to them about the sight and feeling of what she called the sun.

Besides, it can be seen in the movie that women were used and did not even taken seriously. After fulfilling his needs, Bond left Solage deceiving her by ordering beverage. When he comes back he learns that she was tortured and killed. Moreover, these subliminal messages may cause such problems as violence against women in accordance with Katz in video ‘A Violence against Women it is a Men’s Issue’ (Katz 2012).

During her teen years, she was traumatized by the disintegration of her parent’s marriage- her father consorted with prostitutes while her mother was in an affair. Her therapist discovered that she has an olfactory hallucination where she believed that she “smelled like feces.” This statement of hers began to take shape when she had learned the mental rule, “people reject you because you are dirty and unclean” which arises from her experience with her family.
