This anti-war tale of sex, gender, politics and militancy will provide an excellent jumping off point to talk about contemporary instances of sex strikes, naked protest and other forms of body-related activism. Examples could include the women of the Filipino town of Dado who brought the end of a period of violence with a week-long sex strike, to Votes4Nudes, a Canadian Instagram campaign that aims to motivate previously apathetic voters by rewarding poling station selfies with saucy snaps.
We encourage participants to bring their own examples to share for an open-minded, supportive and fun discussion of the body, feminism, humour, and the common ground – and differences – between Lysistrata’s Greece and today.
