    That would of been less effective. If she truly wanted a deterrent, she's doing exactly what she should do - draw attention, and make sure it happens.

    According to this article:

    Bahrami, who moved to Barcelona after the attack to get medical treatment, said the court had originally ruled that she was entitled to have the man blinded in only one eye in Iran because "each man is worth two women".

    "But I explained to the judge that with one eye one can still live," she told top-selling newspaper El Pais in another interview.

    The court then ruled that the man would be blinded in both eyes if in exchange Bahrami agreed to give up the 20,000 euros (25,000 dollars) which she was set to receive from her assailant's family.
    So he'll be blinded in one eye only (since "women are only half as valuable as men"), unless she's willing to give up her $25,000 in medical aid.

    I wonder what she'll choose...

    Picked eye for an eye.

    Oh, and a few drops of acid in each eye doesn't cut it. He needs to have acid thrown on his face in an unexpected moment for it to be the same treatment.

    I don't know if you all continued to follow this, but it seems that she had a change of heart.

    Probably the best strategic outcome there could possibly be...he gets scared out of his wits, and gets a little taste of what she went through, but doesn't actually have to go through his life as a blind man.

    However, this was a bit disappointing:

    However, she said Movahedi is unrepentant and has been rude to her, even after she halted his punishment. .

    I quite like this story. 99% of all news that comes from those regions are about the bad stuff that happens, it influences peoples opinions greatly without seeing the entire picture. The people that live there live in conditions much unlike what we're used to and yeah there's much wrong doing going on and coming from there, but that's just the part of the story that is being told. They are also human beings capable of the same intelligence and compassion as we are.

    No doubt she deserves way more but at least he's being honest. I think it's much worse when the unrepentant FAKE being repented just so they can get off easy. God, I hate that even more.
    People who are truly remorseful act a certain way that is unfakeable.
