Togolese Women Declare Sex Strike as Form Of Protest.




I don't know about the rest of you, but I hate it when women use sex as a bargain chip, which is probably why as funny as this seemed to me at first glance, I am at same time appalled that women would sit down and think like this. 
In Togo, Women from the Let’s Save Togo coalition called Sunday on all females in the country to refrain from sex for a week to force Togolese men into backing the group during their demonstrations.
Let’s Save Togo is an umbrella organisation of nine civil society groups and seven opposition parties and movements that has rallied to demand political reforms ahead of parliamentary elections due in October.
“We call on all women to deprive their husbands of sex for a week from Monday,” Isabelle Ameganvi, a member of the group, told AFP.
“For us it’s a way to get all men, not only those from the collective, to do more in the fight undertaken by Let’s Save Togo over the past weeks.
“Women are the first victims of the disastrous situation that we are living in in Togo. That’s why we are telling all women: one week without sex. That’s also a weapon of the battle,” said Ameganvi.
“We will undertake other actions in the coming days,” Ameganvi said.
