The Global Campaign to Stop Killing and Stoning Women was launched in 2007 and aims to stop the use of capital punishment on women only.[1]

Some feminist groups assert that stoning is exclusively or predominantly used against women. As with so many feminist claims, this is untrue. Iran is offered as proof of the gender-neutrality of stoning.[2]
