Feminist Handmaid's Tale "Nolite te bastardes carborundorum" Resin Brooch

A$17.50

While not technically proper Latin, "Nolite te bastardes carborundorum" ("Don't let the bastards grind you down") is a phrase that has resonated with women everywhere since the publication of The Handmaid's Tale, and is now reaching a new audience through a TV adaptation of the novel.

This brooch measures 30mm (just over an inch) in diameter, and features a hand drawn banner reading "Nolite te bastardes carborundorum" around a drawing of a Handmaid in her bonnet, against a background of deep glittering red. The design is sealed under a layer of crystal clear resin.
