Disposable Victims: Laws and Practices on Gender-related Killings of Women and Girls in Iran

Auteur : Millennia2025

Source : Justice for Iran

 

 

 Justice for Iran

Part one of the submission addresses gender-related killings as committed by private actors; Part two addresses the infliction of death by the State. And Part three addresses self-inflicted harm and suicide.

 

In so far as Iran's discriminatory legal framework is concerned, the submission draws attention to criminal laws and practices that condone murder of women by allowing the accused to escape retribution or at most face minimal punishment as well as civil and family laws that fail to provide protection against domestic violence and other severe forms of gender-based violence. The submission also discusses penal provisions pertaining to stoning and capital crimes that are at their core discriminatory.

 

It is submitted that these laws and practices have collectively positioned women in a situation where they may have effectively become the most disposable victims of murder and other severe forms of gender-based violence.
