The concept of private/public can be seen throughout Persepolis. However, there are specific scenes where it is undeniable that the ideas of inner and outer are often breached. When Marjane attends a party with friends, men and women, the police come to investigate. The party goers are forced to hide the men, dump the liquor, and the women have to quickly put on their veils. Even though they are in the privacy of a friend's home, their inner/private suddenly becomes outer/public. These binaries can be seen everywhere. Inner/outer, private/public, male/female, veiled/unveiled, right/wrong. Nima Naghibi says, "Indeed, public spaces have increasingly become the sites for airing political and economic grievances in private dialogues between strangers of both sexes who are much more open about their disenchantment with the government than in the years immediately preceding the revolution." No matter what the situation is, their will always be those who will push against the ordered norm, bringing private into public or public into private. Both sides push against each other continuously, never reaching a middle ground. What complicates things even more for Iranian women is that the women themselves are fighting each other over veil or no veil.
