Resumo

A adaptação para as telas do romance de 1985 The Handmaid’s Tale, de Margaret Atwood, converge com a atual virada global para a direita. Em diferentes geografias e contextos, tem havido tentativas de reforçar o controle da capacidade reprodutiva das mulheres, crucial para a reprodução do capitalismo, como também resistência por parte das redes de movimentos feministas. Essas tensões têm semelhanças com as preocupações representadas no seriado de televisão. Dentro da virada afetiva, no presente estudo, examino o olhar como uma prática corporal  de controle de gênero sobre as mulheres, bem como uma prática de resistência sob o disfarce de afeto, amizade e desejo, no espaço privado e público.
