The main issue I noticed between the youtube clips and Persepolis with the veils. You see Marjane in Persepolis and the American women on the youtube clips wearing their veil more off their heads. Also, in Persepolis the mother came home and took her veil off, stating that she does not like to wear it. Iranian women are so brainwashed and have a mind set that they cannot show any part of their hair or body. In the youtube clips I enjoy seeing them look up to us; you can see that they want to be free, like American women, to wear whatever they want. I feel bad because we are able to express our own personalities and identities through our choice of clothing where as the Iranian woman are not. I cannot believe that a piece of fabric can challenge a countries power and religion. The only way I see veiling as good is when they understand that clothing option as a class hider. When women are wearing the veil they are not rich or poor, they are equal but not equal to men. The interview with the author of Persepolis says that the book was just not enough. Having it on a film not only shows emotions better but gives you a feel of being in Marjanes shoes during the Islamic Revolution.
