Concept of Fertility and Portrayal of Women in the Societies of the Left Hand of Darkness and the Handmaid’s Tale
Abstract: Depiction of humanoid in science fiction novels does not seduce the human memory to look into the portrayal of women, gender and fertility. The androgynous and polygamous society of The Left Hand of Darkness and The Handmaid’s Tale envision the cruel reality of life that could end up in transforming the role of women in real life. Receptiveness towards science fiction novels by scientists and technologists centers around the point that the human imagination predicted in the science fiction novels could be evolved in the real world sooner or later. The impact of rampant advancements finds its prominent place in the psychological trauma of women. In a society of indomitable women achieving greater heights, there are cruel mongers who exploit the debility of gender. The research paper delineates the concept of fertility, role of women, portrayal of motherhood and the urgencies of the forthcoming alternate society.
