Sakine Mohammadi Ashtiani July 24th


On this day in 2010,rallies were held in Paris,FR. New York City, Ottawa and other major cities throughout the world-to demand the release of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani
She is an Iranian woman who is facing execution for adultery. Stoning women to death is barbaric and a horror and to think there are courts of law who think this is a form of justice is madness. Ashtiani's nephew is now being held in prison for demanding freedom for his aunt. And even IF Ashtiani had an affair, it is not a reason for death for man or woman. If you would like sign the petition and learn more about this story, www.freesakineh.org

On this day in 1990 Ms. Magazine was back on the newsstands after an 8 month hiatus.
