Ten books to read after "The Handmaid's Tale"

At the Waterstones blog Martha Greengrass tagged ten books for readers "enthralled by Margaret Atwood's haunting dystopian vision in The Handmaid's Tale," including:
Women & Power
Mary Beard

“We have to retell stories of women’s power, re-evaluate what power is.” Acclaimed classicist Mary Beard presents a revolutionary manifesto for our time, exploring women in power from Medusa to Merkel and presenting a new feminist roadmap. Hard-hitting, unapologetic and wise.
