Chapter Summary

This chapter describes the strategies DHs negotiate use to navigate domestication's spheres and spaces and, consequently, define or re-define the boundaries of its oppressive landscape, especially in ordinary ways, in their daily lives. It outlines the ways in which the DHs acquiesce to their domestication. Key to this discussion is the ways and means in which gender, class, culture and religion inform the DHs' submission. The chapter then probes the forms in which the DHs resist their domestication. Categorized according to political, economic, and religio-cultural dimensions, these forms of resistance constitute the "public transcript" as these are oft en staged within the public gaze locally, internationally, and/or globally. The chapter finally examines the strategies that exist in the permeable space that exists between submission and resistance. Central to this discussion are the cultural, religious, and political-economic ways in which the DHs defiantly submit and passively resist.
