    However, this is not the case when looking at Victor and Judy’s relationship, which differs from Marisa and Chris’ relationship. When Victor tries to seduce Judy, by sitting dangerously close to her, he is asserting himself as the dominant figure. This action causes Victor to invade Judy’s personal space, which robs her control of the situation and her surroundings since he is very close to her, physically. We this this move in Maid in Manhattan as well. Chris Marshall dominates Marisa and puts her into the submissive role when he stands dangerously close to her. Since Marisa is shorter than him, he is able to tower over her; this causes her to lose her personal space which results in Marisa losing control of her surroundings. However, the domination Victor tries to use towards Judy fails when she pushes him into the pool; this shows Judy as the dominant one out of the two by demonstrating physical dominance. Instead of falling for him and becoming the docile female, which would cause her to perpetuate this stereotype, she calls the shots and is the dominant figure in the relationship.

Raising Victor Vargas and Maid in Manhattan use female characters to show how they…

    Have you ever been made to feel less than because of your skin color, sex, sexual orientation, or even your religion? This is a question that could be asked of anyone. I think that is what Patricia Hill-Collins meant by “The Matrix of Domination.” If you take a good hard look at the world around us, people seem eager to dislike everyone for one reason or another and they have a myriad of reasons to do so. What is interesting is the reasons often coincide with the hatred, and it still doesn’t…

There are a few things considered to be key to societal domination in Auschwitz and these few things had to be upheld or else the system of total societal domination would collapse.
