Oppression & The Chrysalids?

What would be a good thesis statment to represent Oppression in The Chrysalids?

I had come up with the thesis that Religion is the main form of oppression, but my teacher said it was a fact so I had to come up with something else.

Your thesis statement should explore how the theme of oppression is used in the story.  It is true that religion is a big part of the oppression, and religion is often linked to oppression.  You should describe how religion is used as an excuse to opress certain people who seem different.
