US Needs to Break Public Silence on Lack of Rights for Women in Saudi Arabia

    1. Petition by

      CODEPINK

While the United States is aware of the lack of rights for women in Saudi Arabia, they continue to lend political and economic support to the regime. In solidarity with the Saudi Women for Driving, we are asking for Secretary of Defense Hillary Clinton and other United States officials to begin placing public pressure on Saudi Arabia to change its policies towards women.

      We should not support regimes that oppress women.

      If women are the child bearers of all human beings, then why don't they deserve their human rights?

      We should be engaging the government of the country in talks about desperately needed change--before it's too late. Not rubber stamping their brutal and repressive nonsense. We don't need friends like the Saudi shiekhs--we need friends who speak and stand against pseudo-religious mass murderers and tyrants everywhere. One is either fr the rights of human individuals or against them. Before Saudi Arabia is engulfed by demands for change and becomes another monstrous Syria or Libya--now is the time to demand, act, and advise.

      Thank you.

      Women should have the same writes as men do.
