Character Analysis

Professor Moon is one of the speakers at the end of the book, in the "Historical Notes" section. She lives in a post-Gilead world and introduces Professor Pieixoto at a seminar. Professor Moon clues us in to the fact that the world has changed again, and probably for the better – after all, women can be professors once again.
