Women in Togo Call Sex Strike

Women in Togo have decided to hit the country’s men where it really hurts, calling a weeklong sex strike to demand the ouster of Togo’s president. “We have many means to oblige men to understand what women want in Togo,” said women’s opposition leader Isabelle Ameganvi. A similar strike took place in Liberia in 2003, and is said to have inspired the strike in Togo. The women, who are backed by political groups and other civic organizations, want President Faure Gnassingbe to resign.
