Since the weather is extremely boring at the moment I want to give you a heads up on The Handmaid’s Tale. There’s already been 9 episodes released so it’s perfect to start watching during these rainy days. I get very emotional while watching. Can’t help myself. Just the thought of someone taking my daughter from me makes me paralyzed. I think the series brings up a lot of important and current matters, such as the climate change and surrogacy. In my mind, not many women would voluntarily give away the child that has been growing inside them for 9 months. It’s a bit scary how people defend surrogacy and try to claim it’s the women’s choice. I’m sure there are women who would carry a friends child by choice. But the extremely poor women in India, if they had choices like we do, they would probably choose differently. Just a few of my thoughts on a very sensitive subject.

Love, Michaela Widergren
