Iran: Joint Statement on the status of violence against women in the Islamic Republic of Iran
The Islamic Republic of Iran has not ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women and does not recognize violence against women in its laws. As a result of discriminatory laws, women face a wide range of violence, both in their domestic lives and in the public realm, without any legal protections. As this statement briefly describes, the State has failed to protect women from violence committed by non-State actors but also has committed violence against women through its own policies.
