Journal DiscoCook's Journal: Fight Iranian gender-apartheid with one million signatures

Iranian women's rights activists are fighting gender apartheid through the "One Million Signatures" campaign, which demands an end to discriminatory laws against women. At present, men have the sole right to divorce and except in special cases, the right to custody of children. One man's testimony equals that of two women. A man's worth is twice that of a woman in cases of murder or bodily injury. A daughter receives half a son's inheritance. And certain positions, such as that of a judge, are closed to women. The campaign aims to collect one million signatures in support of granting women equal legal status with men. It is a continuation of Iranian women's century-long struggle for gender equality. http://www.iranholocaustdenial.com/action/iranian-gender-apartheid.htm
