Reading Blog Persepolis: The Veil

What might the veil represent? Does it represent the submission of women?
Are bilingual schools really symbols of capitalism? Or of cultural acceptance/tolerance and cultural diffusion?
Why did Marji's mother need to dye her hair? Was she scared that they would prosecute her? Would it be the government or some gang?
Why is Marji so naïve and wants to be a prophet when she's already ten? Also, how come she doesn't see that you can't just forbid pain?
Why can't she see that the previous prohets were not declared prophets until they were over 30 years old? Why does she insist that she's a prophet?
Why does she believe that she's talking to G-d and not a product of her imagination, since there is no known definite shape of G-d?
Doesn't she realize that the last prophet (Mohammed) was told the same? (You are my choice, you are my last and my best choice, p. 8).
What do the change of clothes, specifically to that type of clothes, on page 9 mean?
