In the vein of Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” and Naomi Alderman’s “The Power,” Christina Dalcher explores women’s rights in this dystopian tale where the government limits women to speaking 100 words per day. Non-verbal communication — sign language, writing of any kind, pantomiming — is also forbidden. Books have been banned, and women are no longer educated. Vox portrays the ambition and sacrifices of one mother as she tries to regain her own voice and fight the oppression facing all other women in this society. “Vox” will give readers chills as they consider both the horrors of Dalcher’s tale and the significance in the re-emergence of feminist dystopian novels.
