Colombia: Women on Sex Strike Demand Better Roads

In Colombia Reports, Matt Snyder writes: “For 38 days, 300 women in the town of Barbacoas have participated in a “strike of crossed legs” denying their husbands sexual favors until a road that connects their town to the rest of Colombia is paved.” Authorities said that the road will be paved; but, according to Matt's report, the women “announced that the sex strike would continue until October 11 when construction actually begins.”
