While it may be classified as fiction, to me the series is a look at history – not back in time, but forward. And at the rolling of the final episode’s credits, I was left mute with fear, horror and foreboding, for this is not just entertainment but a salient reminder our rights aren’t rigid but already unravelling. Especially for women.
