It's Time to End Africa's Mass Rape Tragedy

Led by Leymah Gbowee, African women go on a sex strike to demand an end to sexual violence-rape and molestation of women and girls. It seems that the married women gave their husbands an ultimatum; there would be no sex until the violence especially the sexual violence was put to an end! Gbowee calls women to raise havoc and end sexual violence all over africa. She has also taken a page from the Civil Rights Movement by using sit-ins and other nonviolent demonstrations to press the issue!

To say that the women got the full attention of the men would be a mere understatement!
