A dystopian story about how religious fanatics came to power in the United States. Fanatics were initially listened to because they seemed to be talking about the right things. In an era when, due to poor ecology, there were almost no women able to have offspring, it was necessary to change the system to continue the human race. However, after the coup, things got really bad. All fertile women in the republic were herded into special camps and transferred from one rich house to another so that they would not stop giving birth to children. Some women disagree with the new order. They begin to protest weakly at first and then begin an open uprising.
