Episode Title: Bobos and Mamitas
Original Air Date: January 6, 2017
Episode Number: x102
When Penelope and Elena complain about not being taken seriously as women at work and school, Lydia offers advice from an older generation.
Ah, the famous mansplaining episode and it was as great as the gifsets made it out to be. I really love the three different feminist points of view that we got from the three generations of women. Lydia’s views made me cringe a bit, but she grew up in a different time so it’s completely understandable why her views are her views. Same goes for Penelope. It’s great, though, that in the end, they all learned a lesson from the varying viewpoints. Very poignant episode.
Loved these lines:
“Is that how Cubans clap?”
“You don’t win men over by confronting them. You flirt with them. You hypnotize them. And then you do whatever the hell you want.”
“Mami, I did something terrible.”
“It’s okay, I have a shovel.”
