Storyboard Text

  • And that was the book called Persepolis
  • Why should women in Iran be oppressed?!
  • Women deserve rights!
  • *Discussing an irrelevant topic* 
  • She's so unproper!
  • Tehran, Iran, 1978
  • In class, we read a few chapters from the book Persepolis, by Marjane Satrapi. I found it odd that women in Islam did not have the same rights as men.
  • Why should we destroy each other's self esteem when we can empower each other?
  • In the chapters I read, I saw how women were forced to wear veils that hid their hair. If they didn't, they were verbally abused & mistreated by the public. Women were restricted from some rights that men had.
  • She's so weird!
  • What bothered me the most is that women who wore the veils JUDGED women who didn't, & also treated them lesser than they are.
  • Me being the feminist that I am, I felt that women shouldn't have been forced to wear veils or do things that they don't want to do. 
  • Women & girls are constantly being put down everyday, so why couldn't women in the Islamic Revolution stick together & fight for their rights? (I'm not saying that they all have to be feminists, but why not stand up for each other at least?)
  • As women, we should all stick together & empower each other to succeed. We are a pretty strong gender & together we can overcome obstacles. Girls can do anything boys can!
