Brandon explores the intricate layers of poverty, court, the social services system, and the emotional/financial abuse on the Netflix series ‘Maid’. We delve into the experiences of Alex, the protagonist, as she battles poverty, secures employment, and navigates through the challenging social services system – all while striving to protect her beloved daughter.
Can you imagine standing in a courtroom, desperately trying to retain custody of your own child, but facing bias simply because you’re financially unstable? We delve into the portrayal of such broken systems and unravel the silent yet impactful dimensions of emotional abuse. We explore Alex’s struggle against her tormentor and society, shedding light on the harsh realities of emotional abuse that slip past unnoticed because they do not involve physical violence.
