An anti-Vietnam War poster inspired by Aristophanes’s ancient Greek play, Lysistrata, in which the women of Athens and Sparta withhold sex from their men until they make peace.
Thus spoke Lysistrata toward the beginning of the play:
We’ll paint, powder, and pluck ourselves to the last detail, and stay inside, wearing those filmy tunics that set off everything we have—and then slink up to the men.
They’ll snap to attention, go absolutely mad to love us—but we won’t let them. We’ll Abstain.
I imagine they’ll conclude a treaty rather quickly.
