How the 'Handmaid's Tale' Costume Became Go-To Protest Attire for Women
Women in the bright red robe and white bonnet protested the controversial abortion bill that was just passed in Alabama.
“The Handmaid’s Tale” costume is turning into the new go-to protest attire for women.
In the Hulu show, the handmaids are forced to wear the red cloak and bonnet as a symbol of oppression in a male-dominated society. In reality, some women are wearing the uniform as a sign of protest.
The show and costumes became a trending topic on Twitter after women in red showed up to protest the controversial abortion bill that just passed the Senate in Alabama effectively banning the procedure.
The costume was also seen at protests in Washington last year during the confirmation hearings for now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
It's not just the U.S. Women in red have been spotted in Ireland and Argentina, protesting restrictions on women’s rights to choose.
