Nazanin's Death Sentence.
Iran is one of the few places in the world even more indiscriminate in its use of capital punishment than Texas. In the case of Ms. Nazanin, it seem very likely that she killed a man while defending herself from a rape. But, in Iran, a woman's word isn't worth very much. She was sentenced to death in January. The Iranian Supreme Court will review her case in the very near future. The link has suggestions from Amnesty International on actions you can take that might make a very tiny difference and might help save this woman's life.
