Babies were often born deformed, (these were called 'Unbabies') or died during pregnancy or shortly after birth. At one point in the novel, a funeral is described by the main character Offered, she said "the first one is bereaved, the mother; she carries a small black jar. From the size of the jar you can tell how old it was when it foundered, inside her, flowed to its death. Two or three months, too early to tell whether or not it was an Unbaby"(Atwood, 55). The infertile women, rebels and feminists were sent to the 'colonies' to clean toxic waste, where of course they die of either disease or radiation.

A stereotype can be defined as “a cognitive representation or impression of a social group that people form by associating particular characteristics and emotions with a group” (Smith and Mackie, 2007). Of the many types of nursing, a very popular stereotype that is depicted of nurses is being doctor’s handmaiden and only performing repetitive and simple tasks (Hoeve,2014.) This public image of nursing does not match their professional images, in fact, it is quite the opposite. Nurses are strong independent individuals that play just as big a role in the hospital as due the doctors or surgeons. The problem is nurses are not depicted as professionals and the public is not aware that nursing today is very theory-based oriented and a scholarly profession.
The monasteries were cleanly and efficient. However, after the Thirty Year’s War, most of the monostatic institutions were destroyed, which resulted in solely nun’s providing nursing care and the perception of nursing as women’s work evolved. The destruction also resulted in the creation of public hospitals where common, unqualified women worked as nurses. Within the filthy and chaotic hospital were prostitutes, publicly intoxicated, and poverty stricken women sentenced to be nurses as an alternative to jail. They were known to steal from patients, provide sexual favors, and accept pay in alcohol.
After its publication, she wrote "Looking now at the very reticent way in which the subject is treated in this little book, it is difficult to believe such an episode could have occurred." Upon her death in Hastings, England on May 31, 1910, there were 7,399 women physicians in the United States alone. Throughout her life, Elizabeth Blackwell fought sexual prejudices in her attempt to improve the condition of women and the world in which she lived.
The early nineteenth century was a time at which the overall agreement of nursing was negative, given that they were seen as “uneducated, working class girls, often depicted as drunk and debauched” (Whyte, 2010, p. 18). Whyte’s (2010) description draws the conclusion that nurses were cruel and unable to uphold their work ethics to the proper standards of society. During this period in time, many believed that nursing was not a respected career choice, as it was considered to be of a “lowly profession” (Whyte, 2010, p. 18). Although this was the thought of numerous people, Florence Nightingale was an exception. Whyte (2010) suggests that Nightingale strongly supported the education of nurses so that they could provide an intelligent and compassionate standard of care.
