Kenyan women’s Lysistrata protest

The BBC reported yesterday that women’s activist groups in Kenya have slapped their partners with a week-long sex ban in protest over the infighting plaguing the national unity government. Following this story I was interviewed by the BBC Radio Wales’ programme Good Evening Wales on the first anti-violence protest by banning sex ever recorded in literary sources: Aristophanes’ play Lysistrata of 411BC.
