    Ameneh Bahrami was once an independent Iranian woman living in Tehran. In November 2004, her life changed forever when a rejected suitor threw acid into her face, scarring her and blinding her in both eyes. For four years Ameneh fought hard for the right to have her attacker tried under Islamic law which allows for victims' retribution. A rare look at contemporary life and law in Iran.
