Description

Too anxious to sleep? Happens to the best of us. Can’t say we blame you, given the threat of a sexist dystopian future in which a theocratic military dictatorship has taken over your country and turned women into nothing more than vessels for reproduction, forced to breed with a Commander and not allowed to, y’know, do anything that’s not chores. And don’t even get us started on what happens if you’re a lesbian. Or infertile. Or a feminist.

It’s enough to keep anyone awake at night! Don’t just lie there in the fetal position sobbing, pop on your Handmaid lamp and whip through a bit of Margaret Atwood to assure yourself that it’s all fiction. Better make the most of it, soon you won’t be allowed to read! Sorry, we forgot we were meant to be making you feel better.

We may not be good at providing comfort, but this lamp certainly is. With its gentle glow and comically oversized bonnet, you can’t help but feel that having to wear a nice red maxi dress and living somewhere with strict punishment for rapists wouldn’t be THAT bad. Look, she’s even got a trendy wicker handbag! Who let the ladies of Gilead have a copy of Vogue?!

Just plug it in at the mains and let the light chase away any thoughts of public execution or forced prostitution. There’s really no need to worry, it’s not like any powerful men are trying to take away women’s rights in real life, right?
