The purpose of the page I took from Persepolis is how women in Iran are forced to wear the scarves over their heads or they will be beaten. If someone were to only look at this page in the book they would see three people; a mom, dad, and daughter. They would also see a young girl and her mother trying to make a difference by being active and involved with what’s going on in Iran. In this panel, the mother goes on and says, “Tomorrow there’s going to be a meeting against fundamentalism” and the daughter quickly responds, “I’m coming too.” You then see the father in the background with that surprised shocking look on his face. Then it shows a close up of the family in the next panel and the father has one eyebrow up and you can immediately …show more content…
Her dark side is coming out because she has had enough and is willing to fight for a change. Onto the next panel, you see the daughter passing out flyers at the protest. The daughter’s facial expression tells me that she is enjoying doing what she is doing because she is just trying to make an impact. I personally believe small little acts can cause the biggest impacts in situations. As the daughter was handing out flyers things got ugly and it started to get violent.

The last panel may be the biggest because it’s the biggest scene on this page. Men with bats using threating words towards women are a pretty big deal. There was a panel transition with the first two panels. It showed the family having a conversation and then zoomed in because it was a serious moment. That really gave the conversation being had more effect. There is just enough text on this page not too much or too little. The first three panels are normal they are your typical comic book bubbles. Then the next two when the women are protesting you can tell they are yelling because they are in the pointy spikey looking bubbles that are usually used for those situations in comics. The last panel has the same thing when the men are yelling at the women sayings “ the scarf or a beating.” Penciling in the first two panels had the father in the background and he was overlooking the conversation between the mother and daughter with a shocking face. In the second panel, it’s a closer image and it’s the mother looking up at the father, the daughter looking up at the mother, and the father looking down at the daughter. Everyone was looking at someone different which is cool. In the third panel, it’s just shows the mother from the shoulders to the head with her fist up in the air and her serious face. In the fourth panel, it shows the women protesting in the background in shade of
