Los Angeles, Sep 19 Fresh from her Best actress in a Drama Series Emmys win for her role in "The Handmaid's Tale", Elisabeth Moss is now set to star in Simon Curtis' women rights film "Call Jane".

While many assumed the other shoe must bear a rather earthy swear word, others pointed out it could be a reference to her character's name, Offred, which made flawless sense...

In an Instagram post, Moss' stylist, Karla Welch, revealed that one of her client's custom shoes was marked with the word "off".


With an Emmy under her belt, you would be forgiven for thinking that Elisabeth Moss was going to take a few months off before signing up to her next project, with hard-hitting The Handmaid's Tale being a hard project to follow. Welch captioned the photo, "You'll have to guess what the other says ... our note to the patriarchy #teamresistance". In Margaret Atwood's 1985 novel, Offred discovers the words "nolite te bastardes carborundorum"-which loosely translates to "don't let the bastards get you down"-etched into the floor of her wardrobe, presumably by the household's previous handmaid, and clings to it throughout her forced servitude". 'There are still meetings you walk into and you wonder if they say "no" because it's a show or film led by a woman, ' she added.

Of course, it can also be read as Moss's way of calling out Hollywood's own patriarchy.

The actress will play a married Chicago woman who becomes pregnant in Call Jane, based on the true story of a 1960s movement called the Jane Collective, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
