Women in Iran

Iran's women have been the victims of a misogynist regime. They have suffered a lot of indignity at the hands of a regime that treats women as second class citizens. In the courts their testimony is not equal to that of a man. They are punished for lesser crimes by hanging, or even being stoned to death. The women of Iran have their own testimony to the brutality of the Khamenei-Ahmadinejad regime. I just found this video which depicts the sufferings of the women of Iran:

I cannot understand what is being said, but the images tell me everything about what these women have suffered at the hands of the basij.
