Iranian Law's Abuse of Women

Nat Hentoff of the Village Voice has an important and informative piece on the stoning of women who are guilty of what is called "adultery" in Iran. Under Iranian law, even a woman who has been raped can be found guilty of adultery and executed by stoning.

Though Hentoff's politics are polar opposite of The Oracle's, this writer greatly respects his willingness to take on civil rights causes wherever he finds them.
