Byron Xerxes Livsey's insight:

i do plan on reading the second book. I want to hear about Marjis Return from Austria. I want to read if she grew up more, and also i wonder did her views change on the Iranian Revolution. Her story is very intresting, the way she thinks is mindblowing, so i cant wait to read it.

Persepolis

Persepolis | Persepolis: Iranian Women | Scoop.it
The Book the sources are based on.
Byron Xerxes Livsey's insight:

this book is about a young girl, who had dreams of being a prophet. she faces a lot of problems, trying to make her dream come true. but early on she realizes that she will not become a prophet. the people in the book, had a hard life due to thee religon and what they believed in. if you didnt believe in a certain thing, you were punished. Also if you didn't dress like the person that they made seem of fundamental, then you were punished. The women had to wear veils, that covered them head to toe, with only showing the face. The idea of a fundamentalist man, was a bearded man that never tucked their shirt in. These are the ideas of the people that wanted to ruin Iran. People in the book showed heart, but started to understand that the punishment was getting harsh rather then mild. You would get whipped, you would be executed or jailed for many years. Once people started to understand the consequences they either packed up and shipped out, or they put a black covering over the windows, because people snitch to get on the good side of the bad side. This book explains, how human rights are token from them, and how they live in fear each and every day.

The Iranian Revolution of 1979 .. Views on Women

Byron Xerxes Livsey's insight:

in the video he explains how the revolution changed each and everybodys life has changed since the revolution. people are not the same. some people have attempted to go back to how they lived life before, but it was hard for anybody to trust someone. The life people live now is uncomfortable, peoples beliefs would change. believing in something the others didnt believe in, would result in serious pain or punishment. In the book it says that kids would dream to be something, but the harsh words from the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini would change there dreams. "i wanted to be a prophet, but after what i heard i understood i couldnt" (Satrapi 8)

Women arent humans to the the people in Tehran. Women are seen as dogs, or servants. The women are not equal to men at all, they have no rights. These women that cover their entire body besides there eyes, are seen to be the most respected. Being yourself as a women is not respected, giving up your rights and humanity as a woman is.

I think taking a visit to Iran will change somebodys life. there is a war zone, there are so many problems. To want to put yourself in between these problems, will open your eyes to the little you do know about the Middle east.

Lingering Issues

Lingering Issues | Persepolis: Iranian Women | Scoop.it
Byron Xerxes Livsey's insight:

the iranian revolution, cause lots of issues and problems. Things like, poverty, drug abuse, and unemployment. the revolution completley tore everything apart. people tried to come together and protest about the issues. during these protest of the iranian revolution, people were murdered, people were hurt. the worse was the black massacre. the black massacre would have 88 people hurt, and several hundred killed. In Persepolis, Marji attended this protest (Black Massacre). They went there to protest there beliefs about these issues, but were punished. "For a revolution to succeed, the entire population must support it." (Satrapi 17). people tried to come together and be one, but could not ,due to the violent people that surrounded them like islamic officers and Shah believers. This would give them little hope of changing things, but little things also would give them hope. Things like the Iranian Anthem coming on tv. The anthem, gave them courage and strength even though they knew they were out numbered and probably going to get hurt. This journal tells, how the courage and strength they did receive from things like that helped them out. Things got bad, but things have to be bad before they are good or ok. Thats what this newsletter explained, even though overty was an in issue, it provide food, houses for the poor. thats just one example of they good outcome.

No Equality For Women

No Equality For Women | Persepolis: Iranian Women | Scoop.it
Byron Xerxes Livsey's insight:

women in Iran, are treated like dogs. they get no respect from anyone. They say the only thing to protect women are the veils. "And so to protect women from all the bad things, wearing veils became obligatory" (Satrapi 74) women are seen as if they are not human in this type of place. in the newspaper it states how if a man kills a women and is executed for it, then the woman family has to pay the mans family, because his life is worth twice as much as hers. this just shows hoe the women have no rights, and no justice what so ever. they have to live life from when theyre born till they die in fear because of what the men in this place will do to them because of there gender.

How He Changed The Iranian Women..

How He Changed The Iranian Women.. | Persepolis: Iranian Women | Scoop.it
Byron Xerxes Livsey's insight:

this explains how the revolution was started, it aslo explains how the revolution changed peoples lives for the worse. people were scared to live, people were scared to be them. People wanted to change, just to live or be seen as someone in good in the society. In the book, it explains how a girl who was a very provactive girl, went from wearing low skirts and low shirts, to fully clothed. "Look at her, she went from being a happy with her self to wearing that" (Satrapi 56). These people were infected emotionally, physically, and socially. You couldnt trust anybody, because people would rat you out just to get on the good side of the bad people. It became a hell hole for everybody. it ruined familys, it ruined homes, it took the safety away from people that deserved it

Laws Against Women in Iran

Byron Xerxes Livsey's comment, December 17, 2012 11:42 AM
These laws are created to hold the women back. Instead of the laws giving them rights, they take away there rights. These Women are not human to the men here. They are just slaves.
