The breadwinner takes place in the market. ( Ellis 15)Besides the house this is the main place.
One of the conflicts in The breadwinner that women couldn't go outside without a man who is their relative. This was a big power issue. (Ellis 15)
One of the many themes that I could come up with was that you should never give up. Parvana, even in the hard times has hope that her father will come back and is not dead. (Ellis 37) Eventually when Parvana thinks all hope is lost her father is free for prison.
The main power issue that I found was that the Taliban took away the peoples freedom and overpowered them. ( Ellis 18)
I think a good symbol would be a burqa burning in a fire. This would represent the women having equal rights like men. Also it would represent the Taliban not being there anymore. (Ellis 23)
