Marjane Satrapi

Today’s Dame of the Day is Marjane Satrapi (November 22, 1969-). Growing up in Iran at the dawn of the Revolution, Satrapi witness family members and friends suffer and even die under the new regime. To protect her from the government’s restrictions on women, her family sent her to boarding school in Vienna. Satrapi wrote of her experiences at home and abroad in the graphic novel trilogy, Persepolis. (The books were later turned into an animated film of the same name.)
