Stoning according to Iran's constitution:

The penalty for adultery under Article 83 of the penal code, called the Law of Hodoud is flogging (100 lashes of the whip) for unmarried male and female offenders. Married offenders may be punished by stoning regardless of their gender, but the method laid down for a man involves his burial up to his waist, and for a woman up to her neck (article 102) 

Article 104 of the Law of Hodoud provides that the stones should not be so large that a person dies after being hit with two of them, nor so small as to be defined as pebbles, but must cause severe injury. This makes it clear that the purpose of stoning is to inflict grievous pain on the victim, in a process leading to his or her slow death.

About Us

Women's Forum Against Fundamentalism in Iran is a US based non-profit organization based in Boston, Massachusetts.

 

We are a group of individuals concerned with the growing threat of fundamentalism worldwide, particularly in Iran. We submit to the definition of fundamentalism explained in the comparative study of religions, as embodiment of anti-modernist movements and backwardness in its host cultures. 

 

Our primary area of focus is the Islamic Fundamentalism in Iran that was established as a form of government in 1979. Having been suppressed or victimized by the abuse and misuse of religious authorities in Iran, many of us have been active over the past two decades in the areas of human rights, democracy and freedom for the Iranian people, women in particular.

 

We believe the full participation of women in all levels of decision making will lead to desired social, political and economic equality. We reject all forms of fundamentalism and believe in religious pluralism and secularism. We believe in women's struggle in Iran and support their desire to establish a secular and democratic government.


Our Objectives

 

 Support the democratic aspiration of the Iranian people, particularly women, in their struggle against Islamic fundamentalism.

 

Support the efforts of Iranian women in areas of political leadership, economic development, and education.

 

Network with relevant institutions and organizations in an effort to achieve our stated mission.

 

Distribute E-Zan (our monthly newsletter), broadcast Farsi radio to Iran, publish fact sheets and policy briefs on pertinent subjects.
