Colombia: Women on Sex Strike Demand Better Roads

Categories: Latin America, Colombia, Development, Protest

In Colombia Reports [1], Matt Snyder writes: “For 38 days, 300 women in the town of Barbacoas have participated in a “strike of crossed legs” [2] 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.”
