One major event is, the accusation of muslims. Muslims around the world are accused daily of being “terrorist” and causing “terrorism”, those that are accused are called names and looked upon. There has been many cases in which an individual has been rejected a job because he/she relates to an islamic culture. Many large companies refused to hire a muslim women just because they wear a scarf. Has it come down to this, an individual can not work at a certain place because of the way they look or dress?

One instance Malala invokes pathos lies within Chapter 2, where Malala explains, ”The women of the village also had to hide their faces… they could not meet or speak to men... none of them could even read” (Yousafzai 23). The quote serves as a call to action, as women suffer from societal neglect, and by portraying shunned women and condescending men, she spotlights the redundant tribulations that women face so the readers are aware of what goes on in the opposite side of the hemisphere. If the world itself is more conscientious about the evils manifesting in the middle-east, people are more likely to act accordingly to fight against the
A novel called To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. There is a case between an African American named Tom Robinson and a white woman named Mayella Ewell. She accused him of raping her. Tom was always kind to Mayella by helping her with things to do because he felt bad that she was always working.

Women were seen as delicate flowers, who belonged in the household only to take care of the children, house, and husband. That quickly changed when the antislavery, free speech, and women suffrage movement started. Some obstacles that women faced were being taunted by men in public. For instance, "Elizabeth Cady Stanton recalled that women who adopted Bloomer 's attire were ridiculed by the press and insulted by 'crowds of boys in the streets"
They were verbally harassed by men on the side. The men eventually broke through the barriers and started to attack the women. There, many women were injured. Instead of helping, the police just walked away. Another method the women used was picket lines.
Many of the Jewish watched as friends and family were walked to the chambers, "people who were ill or crippled, old, and pregnant women, as well as children"(Gottfried 47) feared more because they knew they would be first. This relates back to the Crucible because Abigail and the girls pointed the finger at everyone else to take the blame off of them so they would not be hanged. Both have the same fear in common, death. Victims who are “living today [are] [in] constant fear of a new war or even a series of wars” (Roosevelt 1). Even though racial persecution is still happening today it is much less, however people still suffer and fear something similar will happen again.
Persepolis, published completely in October of 2007, is a graphic memoir which encompasses the childhood and adolescence of Marjane Satrapi in Iran during and following the 1979 Islamic Revolution and her teenage years spent in Austria. Satrapi uses her life experiences from living in these two contrasting societies, as portrayed in the graphic memoir, to break the many stereotypes that those reading from a Western perspective may or may not have by showing them women’s roles, Iranian culture, youth culture, and the everyday action of the average citizen of Iran. Throughout the entire book, we see Satrapi constantly rebelling against the rules put in place by the Islamic regime, starting out when she was only ten. We see Satrapi and many of the other girls are using the veil to jump rope with, use as a monster mask, and basically everything but its intended purpose (3 / 5). We see this motif of the fight against the veil further extrapolated upon later in the memoir, with Satrapi and her mother taking part in protests being held against the veil being portrayed (5/ 1) and (76 / 4-5), as well as the subtle ways that women fought against it, such as Satrapi’s wearing of a denim jacket and nikes(131/ 4) and the wearing the veil in more and more revealing ways, stating on (293 / 6) “Year by year women were winning and ⅛ of an inch of hair and losing an ⅛ of an inch of veil.” All of these combat the common Western assumption that absolutely everyone in the middle east can be
To what extent is literary devices used as an instrument to show social, racial, and class differences in Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi? The novelist, Marjane Satrapi, wrote, Persepolis, as a graphic novel to display other countries the progression of the Iranian Revolution through a bildungsroman perspective. The author uses literary devices several times as it narrates the sentiment of Marjane Satrapi as well as civilization in Iran. Marjane Satrapi segregates the western culture to the eastern culture by restating the Iranian Revolution into a graphic novel. The author’s panache affects how the audience interprets the scenario tremendously; Marjane Satrapi ensures this by using imagery.
An article called, “Isolated and Left Behind” by EBSCOHOST stated, “Everyday we walk out the door, we never know what’s going to happen.” Transgenders fear of being violated everyday. If they get assaulted in public, open areas, it could be worse in a private, smaller area. The same article expresses, “46% verbally harassed.. 47% sexually harassed.. 1 in 10 reported being the victim of violence from a family member.. 17% said they left school because of the harassment and physical and sexual assault there.” Transgenders get treated badly not only by strangers, but also by family and friends. They also are so threatened that they leave school and have a higher chance of getting a lower, more poor education than other students. Unfortunately, the article reminds us, “.. just 19 states and the District of Columbia BAN discrimination in public accomodations against people based on their gender identity or sexual orientation.” Only 19/50 states have banned discrimination against people based on what they wear or want to be called.
The revolution was the cause of many outrageous new laws one of which stated that women should cover their bodies and wear a veil in public. Marji and many other kids ignored this new law and continued to wear what they wanted “ Despite the new laws about clothing, many kids still wore what they wanted to, even if it meant getting arrested.” (p.132-133). If I was in the same predicament as Marji I would also wear anything I wanted to because it 's not right to tell someone how to dress in public. The Islamic law made drinking and smoking illegal, which made kids want to do it even more. Marji along with many kids started smoking and drinking because they thought it was cool, they also thought that smoking made you an adult.
In picture 12 I think that the tone that they are trying to show us is frustrated. I think this because the lady is trying to brake hold of the police and the police look frustrated with the lady for trying to escape. Also the men and the woman 's face have that frustrated look to it when the police are clenching onto her arms so that they could carry her off and that she could not leave their grip. In picture 11 They had an enraged tone. I belief that they had this tone because people are protesting and protests aren 't good.
Some of the by standers had informed the police about it and she had been seen running away from all this violence. “She refused to go with him. He assaulted her, he pulled her out of the taxi and gave her a punch in the face. Sharpe had forced Mona Hayes for many things. He had forced her to live with him as husband and wife.
Once we left the dollar store we went back to the laundromat when my mother and I were approached once again and this time the man I the patriots jersey actually finished what he said.
