Creator of the multiple Emmy award-winning television series "The Handmaid's Tale," Bruce Miller, hopes his show becomes "irrelevant very quickly."

On Wednesday, Mr. Miller took part in the UN event "UNiTE by 2030 to End Violence against Women and Girls," insisting that women everywhere have the right to a life free of abuse.

"The Handmaid's Tale" is set in a dystopian society in the not-too-distant future, where women are completely subjugated to men.

Before going to the podium, Mr. Miller told Liz Scaffidi how the themes of his hit show were relevant to today's discussion on ending violence against women.
