Author Anne-Mae Slaughter, who penned the bestselling dystopian novel The Handmaids Tale, has said the idea of working as a woman in today’s world is “tough” to her.
Speaking to the BBC’s Newsnight, Ms Slaughter said women had always been “tougher” in this world than men and that her own upbringing had taught her “it’s not a one-size-fits-all world”.
“The women of my generation have always been tougher, tougher than men,” Ms Slaughter, 59, said.
Ms Slaughter was speaking after speaking out about her book, which tells the story of a US state that forces women to live under harsh conditions to ensure their families remain intact. “
The world we live in today is a little bit tougher than what my parents and I grew up in.”

“I’m proud to have written a book that says, ‘This is the world we’re living in now,'” she said.
The book was published in September and has sold more than 10 million copies.
“What I find is, if you’re not the daughter of a rich woman, you’re a pretty ordinary girl,” Ms Scherer said.
Ms Slaughter is the author of a number of bestsellers including ‘The Vagina Monologues’, ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ and ‘Gangster Squad’.
She has also written several short stories.
The author of the novel, Ms Schere, said she felt “sickened” by the idea that women were expected to be subservient to men.
“It is the absolute truth that we all have to do this,” Ms Skherer said in a statement.
It’s not that hard.” “
Women are always expected to work for men, whether we like it or not.
It’s not that hard.”
Ms Scherner, the author behind the book, said the book was not intended to be a political statement, but was intended to teach women about how society had become.
“You cannot escape the truth of our times and the realities of how this world works,” Ms Schhere said.
In a statement on Facebook, Ms Skhere also described Ms Slaughter as “a brave woman”.
“I am so proud of Anne-Margret’s contribution to our world.
‘A brave woman’ Ms Scheler said that despite Ms Slaughter’s “troubling” and “devastating” views, she felt it was important to share her own experiences. “
Her courage and vision, and the incredible generosity she showed her readers in their darkest hour, will live on forever.”

“She has a great story and a brilliant novel, but she also has a strong heart, a deep sense of justice and empathy,” Ms Scheller said.
Mr Scheller added that Ms Slaughter would continue to work on The Handmaiden, which is being published in Australia, in Australia and the US.
“Anne-Marie has shown us that there is a powerful voice for all women in our society, and she is a courageous woman who will continue to speak out on behalf of women’s rights in this country,” he said.
‘A tough, uncompromising voice’ ‘I would never want to be an example’ Ms Slaughter also took aim at the idea men who were unhappy with their jobs were somehow entitled to women’s “compassion”.
I’m just a hard, uncompassionate voice,” Ms Shelle said. “
When I say I’m a tough, stubborn voice, I don’t mean I’m some kind of hero, I’m not.
I’m just a hard, uncompassionate voice,” Ms Shelle said.
She also spoke of how “it makes me very angry” to hear that men were “trying to control everything”.
“It’s like they’re not really human.
They’re just machines,” Ms Sholel said.
