In 'Alias Grace,' themes of sexism and violence against women are relevant today

Margaret Atwood’s book, “Alias Grace,” is now a Netflix series. It tells the true story of Grace Marks, a Victorian-era servant who was convicted of killing her employer and his housekeeper when she was 16 years old. The show is more of a window into the ways women have been oppressed and have had to navigate a male-dominated world.
