Storyboard Text

  • I am Bita and this is about my best friend Laleh.
  • Laleh would always come to school complaining to me and her friends on how much her brother did not understand how truly upset she was because the boys have been harassing her in school.
  • “Every day they harass me. If it's going to be like this everyday then I don't want to go” (Nine).
  • I'm sorry, Laleh but I just do not understand any of what you are going through.
  • One day at school, our teacher called Lalah, Aaleyah, and I up to talk about wearing the veil to school.
  • Girls, I understand how you may not want to wear the veil but it is inappropriate to show yourself the way you do.  Girls here in Islam need to start to cover up at the age of nine.
  • The veil looks ridiculous! Why do we have to cover our hair and the boys here do not???
  • Well if you do not cover up from now on I will have to expel you girls!!
  • That day after school, Laleh "left school, walked home, climbed to the roof of her house and threw the herself off" (Nine).
  • And although my best friend is gone and I am devastated, we have to carry on with our education as if nothing bad has happened.
