Hey class - Hope you are all enjoying Persepolis as much as we are. For this post, I wanted to talk a little bit about identity. What makes a person's identity? The music they listen to? Their religion? Their political beliefs? What makes your identity?
In Persepolis, we see that Marji is forced to wear the veil. I feel that clothing is an important part of expression. It allows us to show the team we're rooting for (go sabres!), our favorite brand, or even a funny statement. How would you feel if you were no longer allowed to wear what you wanted? How do you think that clothing and identity are linked?
