PUPILS have written to the president of Iran after attending an Amnesty International conference.

After hearing presentations on domestic violence, human trafficking and women in Iran, the students from Monk's Walk School's sixth-form were motivated into action.

One student said: "The conference raised significant awareness about the dangers that British and international women face today."
