No Women. No Play. DC 2010

Event Date: 
July 31, 2010 - 02:00 - 06:00

No Women. No Play. DC 2010 is a campaign launch event to address women's rights issues, particularly in regards to Saudi women. This campaign launch will be an outdoor concert at Dupont Circle in Washington, DC on Saturday, July 31st from 2-6pm.

Details on the campaign:
Saudi Arabia is the only country that outright bans women from participation in sports and the Olympic Games. Women cannot become athletes, managers, coaches or trainers for national teams.

The Institute for Gulf Affairs believes that this is unacceptable in the 21st century, and will be initiating the No Women. No Play. campaign to pressure Saudi Arabia into allowing women to participate in the 2012 Olympic Games. If the Kingdom fails to comply, we will pressure the Olympic Committee to ban Saudi Arabia from the Games in accordance with the Olympic Charter. The charter denies countries that discriminate based on race, gender, race and religion. We feel this is necessary because Saudi Arabia is the only country that outright bans women from participation in sports and the Olympics. Women cannot become athletes, managers, coaches or trainers for the national teams. We need your support to change this.

There will be speakers and performers that will talk about the importance of fighting for women's rights on Saturday, July 31st at Dupont Circle, Washington DC. If you are interested in partnering with the Institute for Gulf Affairs (as a performer or an organization), please contact us. We appreciate all the support we receive as this a cause we are passionate about.

Location:
Dupont Circle
Washington, District of Columbia
