The conflict of Persepolis is the changes that are caused to the way of life of families, women and school children when the fundamentalist Islamic theocracy--government by religion and religious law--takes over Iran. Marji is the main character and the conflict(s) are shown through her point of view and experience, in the black-and-white graphic novel. The resolution comes when Marji's family realize that Maji has become an independent person who thinks independently and does not submit to oppression, though they realize the great danger this puts Marji in.
