Someone has been reading the classics : Kenyan women are trying to pressure politicians into finding an end to the current political crisis, by re-enacting Lysistrata's story. That is, by withholding sex for a week.

Here is the story



"We are asking even sex workers to join the cause, even if we have to pay them ourselves," said Patricia Nyaundi, executive director of the Federation of Women Lawyers in Kenya.


"We cannot allow our leaders to argue over non-issues while relegating the issues that affect this country to the back burner. When this happens, women suffer the most," said Ann Njogu, director of Centers for Rights Education and Awareness, which describes itself as a non-partisan organization that "seeks to empower the society on women's human rights."
