Hulu’s TV adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s iconic novel The Handmaid's Tale — about a young woman forced into being a handmaiden struggling under a patriarchal regime — premiered at Tribeca Film Festival over the weekend.
Speaking at a panel following the screening, leading star Elisabeth Moss courted minor controversy by denying the show’s feminist storyline.
"Honestly, for me, it’s not a feminist story. It’s a human story because women’s rights are human rights,” she told the audience, per AV Club , after being asked about similarities between Offred and her Mad Men character Peggy Olson.
