A woman is facing issues with her manager who seems to have taken a grudge against her going as far as humiliating her. How do you deal with this situation?

I recently started working at an MNC as a part of a ten-member team. I mostly deal with the foreign language aspect of it and am also helping develop guidelines for the content we review.
When I began working, my manager was pretty decent to us, as team. But in time, she started behaving in a very moody and unprofessional way. Her behaviour became even worse when a new member joined a team. Since then, the manager has been quite rude and extremely unprofessional. She speaks down to us while also taunting us about our speed.
We are being given unattainable targets, and when they aren’t completed, we get reprimanded like school children. If a task takes too long to be completed owing to its difficulty, she will often humiliate us in front of the team. All this behaviour of hers is only directed towards four people from the team.
Meanwhile, I did speak to the higher manager during a monthly meet but that still hasn’t helped.
I was hoping to get some suggestions from you.

There are several reasons as to why your manager is behaving the way she is right now which seems to be in contrast with how she was when you first joined the team. To me, right away it seems that she is under tremendous pressure from different quarters – could be both personal and professional.
When women are not able to say ‘No’ to requirements on both fronts they come under undue stress which makes them behave in an aggressive manner or even passively in some cases. It is probable that she has had some massive change on the personal front for which she was not prepared and professionally – her KRAs could be more loaded with inadequate resources. Having said all this let us see how you can handle it in a way which can be a win-win for both of you.
Firstly I would suggest that you gather data on instances (approximately 4-5) where you feel the behaviour impacts the inter personal relationship between you and her and therefore your deliverables.
Then fix up a one to one meeting with her – you can give the context that you would like to discuss something which is affecting your work performance.

"I chose to go out into the remote, wild, unknown, and make it home," says entrepreneur Kiranjeet Ahluwalia Chaturvedi, who owns Birdsong & Beyond.
The story of my mountain home Birdsong & Beyond started taking shape in 2009, on the internet, the way many stories do these days.
My childhood fascination for a life in the Himalayas led to an internship with a central Himalayan NGO instead of a much prized corporate assignment. But when they offered me a full-time job, I refused. I was overcome by fear and a lack of confidence.
My other longings pulled me away – the longing to fit in, to earn validation from others. By my mid-30s, with all the trappings of a middle-class urban life in place, the call of the snows couldn’t be ignored anymore. So I got to work on it with clearer intentions and a stronger sense of what I needed for myself, and why.
Many Indian elderly are firm believers in enslaving a daughter-in-law in the name of tradition which is actually a tradition of oppression and not of religious faith.
Albeit, the popular culture has interpreted scriptures as suggesting that Kanyadaan is the supreme form of donation given to someone, the connotation that the word donation alludes to definitely objectifies the girl.
Even when the exegesis justify the act of giving away the daughter, considering it a ritual to mark the initiation of the daughter into her husband’s gotra and her becoming the part of his family tree.
There is no denial of the fact that this initiation is not required on the part of the groom thereby formally denoting the end of the filial ties with the daughter as it was popularly instructed to the bride during the Vidai ceremonies:
