Should my (female, U.S. citizen) friend go to Iran with her soon-to-be-ex-boyfriend?

I have a friend who is pretty much about to leave her Iranian boyfriend, here in the US. She has leased an apartment and all but moved out. All of a sudden he wants her to visit Iran with him. Insists on it.[MI]

Warning bells are going of in my head from what I have heard of the state of womens rights over there. Are there any good books/articles/sites that I can point her to that spell out the dangers to women of visiting a country that has no diplomatic ties with the US, and is an Islamic Theocracy where Sharia Law
is in effect? Am I right to be concerned, or should I chill out? She might be most inclined to listen to personal stories rather than cold interpretations of law, FWIW.
