Marjane Satrapi

Marjane Satrapi-from-diplomatie-dot-gouv-dot-fr

You didn't know there were female middle eastern cartoonists? Well there's at least one. Ms. Satrapi was born in Iran but left with her family as a child after the revolution. I believe the quote from the cartoon below roughly translates into

"The Shah's government imprisoned my uncle but the Islamic government sentenced him to death."
