A sex strike by women demanding a paved road to the small town of Barbacoas has deservedly grabbed the media’s attention.
Since 22 June, the women of the small town of Barbacoas in the Nariño province of Colombia have foregone all sexual activity. After years of fruitless pressure on the central government to pave a road linking their town with the rest of the province, they finally reached breaking point and organised what has come to be known as the “crossed legs movement” in protest. The failure by previous administrations to take action has left Barbacoas virtually unreachable by car, leading to scores of deaths.
Welp… That’s one way to make men do what you want.
Haha oh my gosh! Also like a real-life Lysistrata.
