Back in April, Fox News had this article:
Without fanfare, the United Nations this week elected Iran to its Commission on the Status of Women, handing a four-year seat on the influential human rights body to a theocratic state in which stoning is enshrined in law and lashings are required for women judged "immodest."
Just days after Iran abandoned a high-profile bid for a seat on the U.N. Human Rights Council, it began a covert campaign to claim a seat on the Commission on the Status of Women, which is "dedicated exclusively to gender equality and advancement of women," according to its website.

This Is All Kinds Of Wrong of the Day: An Iranian actress was sentenced to 90 lashes for starring a movie about how Iran mistreats its actresses, an opposition website reported.

Vafamehr was arrested in July; her verdict was reportedly issued Saturday.
According to state media, My Tehran for Sale was never officially approved for distribution in Iran. Watch the movie’s trailer after the jump:
