I don't think you would get this in a male environment as we tend to stick up for ourselves. But when women clash, it is either cat fight or sulks. the daughter definitely feels she is being forced out.
Might be a bit late, but if it was me I'd have been gathering evidence about the things my manager was doing to me.

Having been a victim of bullying at work I know how stressful and demoralising it is.

I too considered changing jobs, but couldn't.
