Neutrality disputed[edit]

This article is currently very biased, no less in the lede where it declares that Iranian "cultural, political and legal systems that support violence against women". The tag should be removed until the bias issues are resolved.VR talk 03:27, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Another issue here is that the article heavily relies on a single source, which itself has several bias issues. The source for example uses heavily biased language like "Now how sick is that", "Now how perverted is that?" "now that is truly disgusting", "the cross eyed Iranian sadistic judge" etc. The website doesn't seem to belong to a scholarly organization, or one that is usually considered an authority on facts. I think this source only be used with attribution and its claims be treated as the opinion of the author. Better sources can be found for the facts.VR talk 03:40, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
