Movie: The Stoning of Soraya M

The Stoning of Soraya M The Stoning of Soraya M

I want to watch this movie, but I am too afraid to. Not only this movie ends with the death of a mother of four, but this is a true event! It was in 1986. Her husband wanted to remarry another woman so in order to get rid of his current wife, Soraya Manutchehri, he spun a tale of her infidelity. Horrible! Women were and still to this day (in many places in the world), are property of men and have no value. HORRIBLE! She was stoned to death as punishment. I am not sure if she did have an affair or if it was a lie, nonetheless, she did not deserve to die. Well, the ratings for this movie are high so I recommend watching a part of history. We learn from the past's mistakes and ignorance to make a better now and tomorrow. We should also continue the goods of the past and if possible, improve it.
