 Raped out of Paradise: Women in Prisons of the Islamic Republic of Iran

The response of the Islamic Republic authorities to Iranian's uprising in objection to the 2009 presidential election was fraught with serious human rights violations including sexual torture. This was the first time that images and news of victims of these acts reached the worldwide community within hours of the incidents. The effects of state policies on torture and murder of young Iranian women and men were no longer confined to the thick walls of Evin and Kahrizak, but happening on the streets of Iran, captured on handheld devices and broadcast over the Internet. 

This tragic episode in the history of Iran served as a catalyst for Iranians to break their silence and speak out about the inhumane and shameful acts committed by the hands of state authorities- acts which changed the courses lives forever.
Reflections on this episode presented Justice for Iran with the right opportunity to systematically document and study the wide range of sexual torture inflicted by Islamic Republic authorities on Iranians since the inception of the post-revolutionary government.
