The present article addresses the historical and social interweaving underlying the conception of women’s sexuality, based on the analysis of the television series The Handmaid’s Tale (Miller, 2017). We intend to interrogate the category "non-women" shown in the series, referring to those who do not conform to the moral parameters that the regime imposes : they are the lesbians, the prostitutes and the infertile ones. To what extent are the underlying values of this kind still continuing today ? What does femininity mean today ? In what ways has the conception of sexuality changed throughout history ? We highlight the importance of visualizing the various discursive networks that are involved and the effects that the exercise of the power of the patriarchy of coercion has on subjectivity.
