Women's rights in Iran

Khaleej Times reported Four women’s rights activists were arrested on Monday for collecting signatures for a campaign demanding equal legal rights for women in Iran, an Iranian news agency reported. The ILNA news agency said the women were collecting names for a so-called ‘one million signature campaign’ demanding changes in what activists say are discriminatory laws against women in the Islamic Republic.

And they just discovered that fact????
‘Four women activists were arrested in Teheran’s Laleh Park this afternoon (Monday),’ ILNA reported. The report could not be independently confirmed. Iran denies discriminating against sexes and says its laws are based on Islamic sharia.
And Sharia law is definitely discriminatory against women since it is based on the Qur'an such as 2:282, 4:34, 4:15, 24:4, 24:6, 24:13, etc. etc. etc.
