Compiled by Mercy Junction Justice and Peace Center Assistant Director, Reiki Master, and Psychic Kali Meister

“Sooner or later, I hate to break it to you, you’re gonna die, so how do you fill in the space between here and there? It’s yours. Seize your space.” ~ Margaret Atwood

Margaret Atwood voices strong feminist themes through her writing. In several of her books the female protagonist is a representation of “every women” who is victimized and minimized by gender and politics. Her novels that illustrate her strong feminist views are The Edible Women (1969), Lady Oracle (1976), The Handmaid’s Tale (1985), Cat’s Eye (1988), and her most recent novel Alias Grace (1996). These novels portray the strength and proactive nature of women as they struggle with inequality. Awards she received that recognized her contribution to feminists issues are 1986, Ms. Magazine, Woman of the Year and 1988, YWCA Women of Distinction Award. Atwood is also a social activist.

She is the winner of the 1986 Humanist of the Year Award.
