started reading A Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood and though I enjoy it, I can't help but feel irked out by the fact that Women's Liberation had taken one hell of a back-track.

You describe the female perspective and the meaning behind the gender well, and the last two lines really resonate. I actually had to reread the work to get the entire idea, but that's a beneficial factor, I'd say. You show this negative perspective so superbly; the idea of finding this negative niche in the gender is interesting, only making the reader hear your message out even better.

It's simple, which I personally found to be a flaw, but everything else is so profound and commanding that I couldn't help but ignore that minor problem. Excellent work, and keep up the great work! :)
