Celebrating Margaret Atwood
Enter the PG CWWN competition for your chance to win a signed copy of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale!
In October 2013, high-school students in Ontario, Canada, will be able to choose gender studies as an elective course in the Canadian curriculum. Until now, interdisciplinary analysis of gender and sexuality has been limited to colleges and universities. In celebration of this development the PG CWWN is hosting a competition recognising one of the most iconic Canadian writers of the 20th century, Margaret Atwood, whose work continually crosses the frontiers of gender, sexuality and feminist discourses. The PG CWWN is giving away a SIGNED copy of the novel that continues to position Margaret Atwood as a leading voice in women’s writing and feminist debates: The Handmaid’s Tale.
You can enter the competition on our Facebook page or via Twitter by telling us either why you love Margaret Atwood OR what makes The Handmaid’s Tale such a popular and resonant feminist novel.
The competition opens on 1st July 2013 in celebration of Canada Day, and will end on 31st July 2013.
