In the Handmaids Tale by Margaret Atwood is a science fiction tragedy novel about a woman living in sexual slavery. Olfglen a character in the book keeps trying to make the men who are basically controlling her but she wants do things that she wants to do but the men keep refusing.

“But i want to do things as well, is all,” she says grumpy again

“No you must finish what you been asked”

“But cant I do the chores after?”

“No” He repeats angrily (p. 287)

This is a sad part in the book in my opinion because the women in this book are trying very hard to take a bit of control over thier lives but cant and arent even coming close and it makes it even harder because there are not many women that wanted to fight for thier rights at this time anyways
