Today in the Washington Post, Kathleen Parker writes a compelling review of the movie “The Stoning of Soraya M.” about the 1986 murder of an Iranian mother falsely accused of adultery.  Read it here: This movie is a must see for anyone interested in womens’ rights in Iran. 

In truth, little has changed since the death of Soraya Manutchehri (Sorya M.) over 20 years ago.  In 2006, the BBC reported on the August 2004 public execution of teenage girl Atefah Sahaaleh–who was hanged in a public square in Neka for “crimes against chastity.”

The movie will also surely make clear why a little meddling by our President might not be such a bad idea.
