Linda Pastan was a great poet while also a wife and mother. Pastan started sending her work to The New Yorker at age twelve (Potvin par. 6). Later, she went to college and got married.

The first part describes Esther’s internship in New York as one of the twelve student editors for a special issue of a women’s magazine and then at the moment when Holden Caulfield ended his story, we see that Esther begins her gradual descent to the schizophrenic world.
Fariba is one of first non-submissive females of the novel and was portrayed as the woman with a progressive mindset.

Much like Mariam, Laila is a victor.

Laila represents a hope for woman in the male dominated culture, as she goes on to escape from her abusive husband, finds happiness, pursues education, and contributes back to the society postwar.
