• Lola’s troubles in life stem directly from immense societal expectations to be the perfect Dominican daughter, which encompasses beauty, subservience, obedience, and tradition.
  • Lola equates these pressures with “slavery”. She feels repressed by her mother’s firm and physical methods of upbringing that hinder her from exploring life in a way that is available to girls in other ethnicities.
  • She also demonstrates a strong sense of rebellion toward her mother. Lola augments this rebellion through actions such as forcefully stopping her mothers hits as well as completely altering her look from a traditional Dominican one to a punk ensemble.
