Driving Protest Wednesday Around Saudi Arabia Embassy

WASHINGTON (AP) -- An unusual protest is scheduled for Washington as women plan to drive around the Saudi embassy to protest the kingdom's ban on female drivers.

The Institute for Gulf Affairs, which is sponsoring Wednesday's rally, accuses Saudi Arabia of a system of gender apartheid that oppresses women -- most noticeably by refusing to allow women behind the wheel.

The protest will run from noon to 4 p.m. outside the embassy in Foggy Bottom. It is designed to coincide with a protest planned this Friday inside the kingdom itself.
