Women's rights in Iran

Iran's authorities recently confiscated Shirin Ebadi's Nobel Peace prize medal. Activists say the move exemplifies Tehran's hostility toward women. Mahnaz Afkhami was the Minister for Women's Affairs in Iran before the 1979 revolution. She wrote the foreword to a new book called Iranian Women's One Million Signatures Campaign for Equality. Anchor Marco Werman talks with Afkhami about the women's movement in Iran.
