About This Quiz

Set in a dystopian society full of reproductive repression governed by a totalitarian regime, "The Handmaid's Tale," originally written by Margaret Atwood and which was turned into a TV show in 2017, has spoken to our greatest fears. The show envisions a society obsessed with fertility. Featuring "unwomen" who are sent to dangerous work colonies and handmaids as incubators for the elite's children, there are many jobs that aren't so desirable. 

Do you want to know how you'll survive in this brutal new world? Are you curious as to which role you'd play? 

Perhaps you are a Martha. Marthas serve as the home caretakers and have a bit more independence than some of the other roles. Maybe you are more strict and rigid, like an Aunt. If your heart and soul are strong as iron, you'd make a good Handmaid, the women in charge of repopulating Gilead. If you're more about survival at any cost, you might be an Eye, the secret police. Your responses will make sure you end up in the right job. Your skills will be important, so try to answer with confidence. 

Will you stay hopeful for a revolution or conform to the routines of life under your Commander? Find out where you would fit into Margaret Atwood's terrifying society with this quiz!
