Knowledge is power. What types of stories, ideas, or voices would be forced underground in the Republic of Gilead? They are the books that are often banned, dismissed, deemed subversive or dangerous to the status quo, seen as too political or 'politically correct nonsense'. They are the stories that already tell us what's happening in the here and now. From gender studies, Australian history, political memoirs, rebel women, LGBTQI, subversive novels, migrant and refugee stories, race + class and more, this list is sure to defy Gilead.
