The Commander's wife, Serena Joy, is seen as a minor antagonist.
His last gift is finally lingerie and the Commander takes her to a brothel run by the government.The Handmaid's Tale is structured into two parts, night and other various events.This novel can be interpreted as a double narrative, Offred's tale and the handmaids' tales.The night sections are solely about Offred, and the other sections (shopping, waiting room, household, etc.) are the stories that describe the possible life of every handmaid, though from the perspective of Offred.
In many of these sections, Offred jumps between past and present as she retells the events leading up to the fall of women's rights and the current details of the life which she now lives.Several types of women are present in the brothel, as they are seen as defiant against the new system.They are offered the choice of working at Jezebel's or being sent to work in the colonies.The book has been adapted into a 1990 film, a 2000 opera, a television series, and other media.
