A Woman's Worth

|


An Iranian court has found a man identified as Majid guilty of blinding Ameneh Bahrami by throwing acid in her face after she after she spurned his advances. Under the nation's Islamic law, Majid will himself be blinded, but because the law says a woman is not worth as much as a man, he will be blinded only in one eye. However, if Bahrami pays $25,110, the court will allow him to be blinded in both eyes.
