Woman voters see flicker of hope in Iran

This presidential election is particularly important for female voters. When they cast their ballots, one of the big things women have to consider is their rights.

Many women were cautious to speak to Erin, especially on camera.

One woman, though, decided to tell Erin who she voted for. She said she cast her ballot for the moderate candidate Hassan Rouhani.

She then went on to explain why this vote is so important to her.

    Had Benazir Bhutto not been knocked off by the ISI, I can't help but wonder if things wouldn't have been different for women in the Muslim world.

    Also, for all the bloviating that conservatives do about Sharia law, it was Reagan who backed Zia, who hung her father & installed Sharia law in Pakistan, so... what the bleep do we know?
