Action Request:Petition
Location:Iran, Islamic Republic Of

The Iranian Parliament is trying to quietly bring in some additions to a 'Family Law' bill which will have a huge effect on women in that country.
According to the new bill, polygamy is legalized and men are given further powers to re-marry without the consent or even the knowledge of the first wife.
According to the new amendments if a woman contracts a terminal disease or is away from home for 6 months or is imprisoned for a bounced check, her husband can take a new wife.
On the other hand, women’s right to divorce is very limited.
