Women's News December 21, 2010

A Bangladeshi woman was sentenced to 40 lashes under Sharia law, for adultery.  She was caned a month ago, then hospitalized, and died last week.  Caning was outlawed earlier in the year, so several people have been arrested in this case.

An organization met in Yemen about press freedom.  The article calls it Women Journalists Without Chains, and it seems to be a Yemeni women journalists group.  It looks like their chairwoman was arrested in October.

There's a photo exhibition going on in Sana'a about the hijab and politics.  The article I linked to has some photos.
