Teenage Rokhshana was stoned to death this month. She would not stay with the assigned marriage an old man but ran off with the one she loved. She was stoned to death for this act of love. I can not find a petition for her but this is close it helps all.

In addition to the Petition at VISIT SITE....

Please also consider signing this too
Manifesto To Put An End To Fundamentalism

English translation:

Regardless of their ideology and their intolerant religious practices, all fundamentalist movements are plagued with ignorance, chauvinism, obscurantism and even murder.
These movements seek to enslave women, to thwart social progress, and to stifle freedom of conscience and expression. Their will to dominate must cease.
Together, we will break the silence of millions of men and women who, today, are still subjected to their sexist tyranny.
I declare that I am offended by the fundamentalists’ demeaning words on women and that I am aware of their multiple pressures, threats, physical and mental acts of violence, rapes and massacres.
I know of the shameful and degrading conditions endured by women who are imprisoned in their own bodies and behind the walls of their homes.
They are exiled from the very heart of society and their most ordinary daily acts are criminalized.
This happens to them simply because they are women. In that way, I am one of them.

In France, secularism, which separates the laws of the nation from religious dogma, ensures individual freedom and equality for all citizens.
This principle, which was acquired at a great cost 110 years ago, must be clearly established and promoted
throughout the whole territory.
Whether I am from France or not, I agree with this statement and I express it freely and in good conscience.
As a citizen of the world, I support those, women and men who seek to adopt the principle of secularism in their respective nations and who bear the claim for equality between men and women everywhere.
The act of making this statement together and in public is a political act that I claim.

I got this message at your site link Dandelion:
We couldn't find the page you were looking for. And my searches on your title, gay rights and human rights didn't find it either.
And sadly my French is so poor it decided I was a spammer...will try again later

Well, I signed but.....this will NOT succeed. Religiously-inspired fundamentalism pats itself on the back, congratulating its hatred.
