An urgent call to save a life

November 3, 2010 § 1 Comment

Apologies that the blog has been a little quiet in the last few days. I’m back now! And to get right to a very serious topic, I want to draw attention to this post from my friends at Women’s Views on News. The story relates to the possible execution today of Iranian woman, Sakineh Ashtiani, committed for adultery in a court conducted in a language she doesn’t speak.

It takes a second to sign a petition on Avaaz.org’s site to protest about her case – I just did it. They’re aiming for 400,000 pleas to save her life, and  they are only about 80,000 short at the time of writing. Send a message that individual women matter, and that by people around the world standing up in the name of injustice, changes can be made.
