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.

Global Rights: Partners for Justice is a human rights organization working in partnership with local activists in Africa, Asia and Latin America to build grassroots movements that promote and protect the rights of populations marginalized because of gender, ethnicity, race, socioeconomic status, gender orientation or disability. The qualitative research for this report was conducted in 2012 in Brazil and it examines the struggles of a group of individuals who are deeply marginalized from diverse economic, cultural, and political contexts, and who often remain subject to violence, sexual abuse, and murder. In addition to providing information and supporting recommendations on the status of the Afro-Brazilian trans population, the report highlights these individuals’ daily experiences by presenting their own arduous accounts of the struggle for survival and acceptance.
