My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Manipulation
When we were talking about women manipulating men to get what they want in a society where women are powerless, I was immediately reminded of My Big Fat Greek Wedding. There's one part where the main character, Tula, wants to go to college to take computer classes. Her father won't allow her to, but her mother says she will convince him. Her mother tricks her father into letting Tula go to college by making him think that it was his idea in the first place. Tula's mother says, "The man is the head, but the woman is the neck, and she can turn the head any way she wants."
