Women's Rights Protest in Front of Saudi Arabian Embassy

Tuesday, June 29, 2010
Women and human rights activists met in front of the Saudi Arabian Embassy in D.C. Saturday to protest the country's treatment of women. The Washington Times reported about the impending event Friday,

Supporters of women's rights will hold a protest Saturday to denounce gender apartheid in Saudi Arabia.

"This may be like the pied piper for Islamic feminists," said Fatima Thompson, a Muslim convert and a board member for the D.C. chapter of the Muslims for Progressive Values (MPV), which is organizing the event. "They have created all these various organizations to promote women's rights, so hopefully this will be a means to get us all together."

The MPV, which is an "inclusive community" rooted in social justice, will hold the protest in front of the Saudi Arabian Embassy.

The demonstration was being held as a precursor to the arrival of Saudi Arabian King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, who will be meeting with President Obama on Tuesday to discuss, among other topics, the state of women in Saudi Arabia.
