Hilarious! Lysistrata, an Athenian woman, gets the women to band together to strike agains the men in order to make them stop fighting the Spartans and to call a truce. She even manages to get the Spartan women involved to a point. Her idea, withhold sex until the men come to their senses. Comedy ensues when the women agree and the men come home for a much needed break from the war.
