"We didn't really like the wear the veil, especially since we didn't understand why we had to"(3). On the contrary to the Epic of Gilgamesh, in the graphic novel The Complete Persepolis, the main character is battling for power, for a voice. This quote shows that Satrapi did not have power. She was forced to wear a veil at a young age without understanding why. The picture speaks volumes and was chosen because it shows two young girls dressed in all white and wearing veils displaying their innocence and vulnerability.
