The (Road) Rally to Support Saudi Women’s Right to Drive

On Friday, June 17, determined protesters took to the roads outside of the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Washington, DC to protest the country’s ban on female drivers. Through the combined efforts of Nonviolence International and The Center for Democracy and Human Rights in Saudi Arabia, along with friends from Code Pink and a great group of independent supporters, the protesters made Saudi officials and passers-by take notice of this group’s determination to stand alongside Saudi women. The rally showed solidarity for Saudi women in their fight for the right to drive their own cars, and was one of many rallies taking place around the world.
