handmaidstaleA demonstration on Monday at the Capitol received a Handmaid’s Tale-style twist with supporters lined up outside of the state Senate backing the passage of the Reproductive Health Act and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act.

The demonstrators choose The Handmaid’s Tale, now a series on Hulu and based on a Margaret Atwood novel, in which women are relegated to second-class citizenship without reproductive rights in a male-dominated dystopia.

The site of the demonstration was the Senate, where both the RHA and the contraception bill have struggled to pass in recent years. One senator who had watched the TV series admitted to feeling “creeped out” walking through the hallway.
