Whether you’re a handmaid forced into surrogate slavery, or a Wife who is not even allowed to read/write, all women are oppressed. regardless of their rank.

For those unfamiliar with THE HANDMAID'S TALE, you should definitely situate your reader so that he/she understands where your topic is stemming from.
