Kristina Plasari's insight:

This website lays down the basic facts of if you where to be in Iran.  Mike Celizic states that the Iranian law still favors men, but women in that country are more educated and have a more visible role in life than in many other Islamic countries.  According to Iran's Constitution women are not equal.

A woman is treated as half of a man, two women equals one man.

This is a really big website concerning all the major problems of Iran.  The reason I choose this website it because they had two sections that interested me, Discrimination against women and Cruel, inhuman or degrading punishments.  It helps show what they do to women.

Human Rights must be global. Without global Human Rights there will never be peace.
Kristina Plasari's insight:

The reason I chose this website is because its so interesting to see what there rights are.  I look at what they have to deal with and it saddens me to think about it.  It's just so disturbing how they deal with some situations for example at the end of the article there is a picture of a woman who has been lashed. She was punished for going to a birthday party without the permission of the clergies.  This my friend is just ridiculious you have to see this picture.

Persepolis

Persepolis | Persepolis: Marriage | Scoop.it
Kristina Plasari's insight:

Satrapi, Marjane. Persepolis. Paris: L'Association, 2003. Print. Persepolis is basically Satrapi's life during the war between Iran and Iraq. It covers her childhood and teenage years in her native land. This war is so hectic
that she views herself as a foreigner in her own country.

Summarizing the Persepolis can be very easy and very difficult. One very
important object that I felt played a major role is the veil. In 1979 the
revolution took place. Then by 1980 everyone was obligated to wear the
veil. Not many enjoyed the fact of the veil and due to this a lot of
demonstrations started. Due to this veil Marji a main character wants to
take her life a step ahead and and become a prophet and for all to have love. "She wanted to be prophet, to do justice, love and the warmth of god all in one." (Satrapi 9) Another main topic is Persepolis, "Revolution kept going on and people kept dying. After all they used to be poor such as barely could afford to eat. It was hard and her grandpa was in prison. Her dad said that people were suffering all the time. (26) The summary of this is pretty much that nobody is allowed to talk, nor love or even like you if you where in a different social class, not to mention that every innocent person was dying. Her grandpa was the prince back in the days but now he is serving time in jail for all of those he had mad suffer. The presidental party always changed which many people appreciated greatly. Many thought since the president changed and the revolutions were over for a period of time that they called the old president a devil because of all the deaths that had been caused during his election. Everything was happening because of the Republicans wanted to be called Islamic but no one desired that.

Kristina Plasari's insight:

This website Canada Free Press is laying down the basic rules of Islamic Marriage and how to find your right one.  First Kelly states that you have to know the basic rules of the Islamic marriage.  Then the second step to this process is to choose a partner.  When choosing a partner you need to make a marriage contract between her parents or guardian just so they know.  After this contract if the lady friend does not agree then ohh well because her word does not matter.  Then he tells furthermore about what happens after the wedding or children wise.

Juicy Juice! MARRIAGE on Iran!

Juicy Juice! MARRIAGE on Iran! | Persepolis: Marriage | Scoop.it
In Muslim societies marriage is a contract regulated by a code of law rooted in religious precepts—the shari˓a. The relations between the precepts and the law are complex, the interpretations of the law vary considerably, and the social practices of marriage constitute a major part of the rich cultural diversity of the Muslim world.
Kristina Plasari's insight:

This article is summarizing the juicy details about marriage. It states that it is a really big deal for the guy to make a contract about the marriage he would like to obtain before it actually happens. A girl cannot get married to the guy unless this task is done. This girl is pretty much the guys slave in a way. For the Islam's the woman always obeys whatever the man has to say, for instance if he where to say get me some water, you get him that water on time. The men usually marry just so they woman could clean the house and just be there for his commandments, nothing else nothing more. In this type of marriage I have learned that the wife has no rights or say on anything, the husband is the head of the house and of course the only source of power. And if say this couple where to be expecting children the mother has no rights over their baby after birth. A lot of Isam's also just abdon the children is they don't want to raise them. This kind of remind me of my culture in a way because in my family whatever my dad say is whats happening. Not that my mom doesn't have any say because she does but if my dad goes againist something or doesn't like something then it's his way or the highway.

Islamic Marriages

Islamic Marriages | Persepolis: Marriage | Scoop.it
Kristina Plasari's insight:

This article talks about how marriage works in Iran. It informs me that you can not marry someone that is not muslim or someone that your family has no knowledge of. It also tells you that at a certain age when your parents think your ready they start to look around to find you a husband with the help of your friends as well. The guy they find also needs to be of the same age and also at the same class of family. If they are not from the same class or your parents don't like him then you are not allowed to marry him. In marriage, your word is not opinionied and will never be listened to, your parents decide all. 
      How this article is connected to my book is that it gives me more information about their marriage and it helps to convince me that no marriage should be decided by yourself. Also it tells me that you can not fall in love with someone and marry that person. Your family is suppose to find you a man they think will do good for you and support you. Plus it does not matter whether you are a boy or girl in this category your parents words say it all. 
     In the book there is a quote that tells you about marriage that you can not marry someone that is not from the same class as you are .The quote is on page 37 were they talk and her dad says that their love is impossible.
