Before seeing those frames we learn that Marjane…

How do these two authors describe this intense mindset, without letting their characters become silly…

    Margaret Atwood, in her novels, tries to depict every dimension of an individual’s life in her time, particularly the femininity. The vast majority of her scholarship over the past thirty years has focused on her as a feminist, on the artist working through her writing to undermine a binaristic society that holds women as second class citizens, subjugated to the rule of their domineering husbands. Her characters are mostly those females who are subjugated to the domination of a patriarchal power…
