This submission has been prepared by Justice For Iran (JFI) for the 20th session of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of the Islamic Republic of Iran in November 2014. It is concerned with a range of distinct but interrelated criminal laws and other legal restrictions and practices that infringe the dignity and autonomy of women and transgender people, on grounds of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, particularly in respect of bodily integrity, sexual and reproductive health and decision-making. It is also concerned with patterns of sexual torture and other cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment or punishment (hereafter “other ill-treatment”) against women prisoners of conscience, and with the culture of impunity by which such long-standing patterns of abuse are characterized.
