That evening, the teacher calls Marjane’s parents. Her father is proud of her for standing up to the lies but Marjane’s mother grabs her and shakes her. She tells her, “You know what they do to the young girls they arrest? ...You know that it’s against the law to kill a virgin...so a Guardian of the Revolution marries her... and takes her virginity before executing her.” Marji is shaken up at this information.
