NYC Lush Day of Action

Event Description

Join CODEPINK on Saturday, June 1st, to kick off our Lush Get out of Saudi Week of Action to tell Lush Cosmetics to act for freedom and equality by closing its stores in Saudi Arabia!

On Saturday, June 1, we’ll ask Lush to stop doing business in Saudi Arabia! Saudi Arabia is the most gender-segregated country on earth. It imprisons, tortures, and murders women’s rights activists, journalists, and dissidents and is carrying out a war in Yemen so brutal that millions of Yemenis are going hungry. Lush only has two stores in Saudi Arabia so it will not be an excessive burden for them to leave the bloody kingdom.

Make sure you wear pink!

    So- here’s my concern and question- Saudi Women’s rights activists are named as a victimized group in this description and the implication is made we are doing this action in support of them. Which Saudi women’s rights activists called for this? I’m asking because I think it’s really important that our actions and practices supposedly in support of and defense of Muslim women be developed in relationship with those women. The narrative of doing things to support the liberation of oppressed Muslim women is a popular false narrative that has been used to justify harmful actions, including most pointedly the imperial wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the wave of “anti-sharia” laws stripping Muslim women across Europe and beyond of their inherent right to self-determine their religious practice of modesty.

    Perhaps there are communities of Saudi Arabian activists calling for solidarity actions like this and if that’s the case, I believe it important that they be centered as empowered leaders and named to the extent they desire in order to demonstrate this vital principle of what right-relationship looks like with impacted communities and ensure we are not fueling harmful stereotypes and narratives despite our good intentions.
