During one of the demonstrations, a picture is taken of the author’s mother. She is angry and looks rebellious and her picture is published in European newspapers. It is also published in a magazine in Iran and this is a scary thing. Marjane’s mother dyes her hair and wears dark glasses to avoid persecution by the revolutionaries.
