Parvana’s life in Afghanistan
In “The Breadwinner” Parvana’s rights are being violated. She has the right to go to school and get an education. She has the right to go to court to defend people. She has the right to freedom and many other rights, but nearly all of her rights are being violated by the Taliban. I wonder how Parvana deals with it? This essay will be about some of the rights that are violated in Afghanistan, the right for an education, the right to go to court and the right for freedom. The right for an education is violated.

Parvana’s right to go to court is violated. On page 31 a quote helps me give evidence that Parvana’s family can’t go to court. “Parvana watched hopelessly as two soldiers dragged him down the stairs.” I think this quote shows clear evidence because it shows that they just take him and don’t...
