Iranian women making inroads

Here is a heartening story right out of Iran how a woman felt strong enough to ask the court to order her husband to only beat her once a week:

"Just tell him to beat me once a week ... Beating is part of his nature and he cannot stop it."

Wow - that guy is one lucky SOB to have such an understanding wife.

UPDATE: Today, Frank J. posed a good question in relation to the above story, one that was on my mind, but I just could not get it worded correctly. Frank more than adequately makes my point.
