The main characters are the father (Ellis 16), mother (Ellis 25), Nooria (Ellis 19), and Parvana (Ellis 15).
The setting of The Breadwinner is in Afghanistan (Ellis 1).
The conflict is Parvana vs. the Taliban (Ellis 34)
The theme of the Breadwinner is to never give up just like Parvana turned into a boy because she didn't give up. (Elli 64)
The social issue is with the Taliban. They are too controlling and the citizens can't do anything about it (Ellis 15).
Hair is the symbol because if you have it long, then you will not be able to go outside because the Taliban don't allow women outside. If you cut it and act like a boy, then you can go outside and do things freely. (Ellis 64)
