The Stoning of Soraya M. (2008)
Zahra: A Sheikh? More like a holy whore.

Freidoune: Why should I listen you, because you say, the voices of women no longer matter anyway in this country.
Zahra: Hear my story first, you will know why you should listen.

Ebrahim: [instructing Soyara] When a man accuses his wife, she must prove her innocence. That is the law. On the other hand, if a wife accuses her husband, she must prove his guilt. Do you understand?
Zahra: [to Ebrahim] Yes, it's clear, all women are guilty, and all men are innocent. Correct.

Zahra: Are you frightened?
Soraya M.: Not of death. But of dying, the stones - the pain.

[last lines]
Zahra: The world will know!
Title Card: When French-Iranian journalist, Freidoune Sahebjam, published The Stoning of Soraya M., it became an international bestseller, focusing attention on the practice of stoning in Iran, as well as the lack of women's rights there. Despite official denials, untold numbers of people, mostly women, continue to be put to death by stoning in many countries around the world.

Zahra: [Asking to be stoned in place of Soraya] Ebrahim, please, I'll do anything.
Ebrahim: You'll do nothing.

[from trailer]
Zahra: The voices of women do not matter here. I want you to take my voice with you.
