Marjane likes rock music. Additionally, she does not like the veil that covers her face “We found ourselves veiled and separated from our friends.”&nbsp.(Satrapi 22). However, she must wear the veil and suppress her love for punk rock music while in public places. The hijab and the veil make her blend seamlessly with the many other women in the society thus earns herself a sense of belonging. She makes it clear that she wears the veil just because society expects all women to do so especially when in public places. Once she gets home and in her privacy, Marjane reveals her “inner” self. She removes the veil and enjoys her favorite type of music. She feels free when in the privacy of her home. Iran is a hot country and wearing a black hijab and a black veil is torture of its own kind. She, therefore, removes such torturous garments and enjoys her favorite music something she can do in the public space.
