Inspired by Margaret Atwood's timely novel The Handmaid's Tale and the new Hulu TV show, these pins are an expression of appreciation for the series and resistance towards everything Gilead represents. "Nolite Te Bastardes Carborundorum" translates to "Don't Let The Bastards Grind You Down", a message that resonates with fans from all over.

These pins are a chic, but fun take on the quote with hand drawn artwork and elegant gold plating. Each pin is 1.6" (40mm) wide with two sturdy backing clutches for extra security and comes on a custom backing card for display. The original run of these pins raised money for Planned Parenthood and we hope to donate to them (and a number of other groups) in the future!

Choose between Handmaid Red or Mayday Black, or both!
