Elisabeth Moss is the victor of Emmy Award for best actress in a drama series for her role in The Handmaid's Tale, which is the victor of the best television drama series Emmy Award. Not in the "forced to bear random men's children in a not-so-distant dystopian future" way, but in the way that she and Offred both console themselves with powerful hidden messages.

On Monday, Moss' stylist, Karla Welch, posted a photo to Instagram in which she revealed the tiny yet fierce statement.

It's totally not hard to guess what word was written under her other shoe. "Our note to the patriarchy #teamresistance".

However you take it, it's a message the show's fans, and many others, will appreciate.

"It's my bread and butter", she said.

Forget her pale pink Prabal Gurung gown, following Sunday night's Emmys, it was Elizabeth Moss' custom-made Olgana Paris heels that got everyone talking. '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.

She also used the awards ceremony to send a more overt message to two women - firstly her mother, whom she credited in her acceptance speech with being "brave and strong and smart".

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

The movie - set in 1960s Chicago - focuses on the true story of an underground network of suburban women who secretly provide safe abortions for women before the landmark decision Roe v. Wade.
