Why the ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Costume Is the New Protest Attire for Women

“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.
