About the Book

When the Peloponnesian War goes on too long, the women of Athens, led by the beautiful Lysistrata, take matters into their own hands, withholding their passion as a way to force their men to negotiate a peace treaty. But the women’s vow to deny their husbands and lovers does little to force peace, and instead ignites a battle between the sexes.

Aristophanes’ Lysistrata was first performed in 411 B.C., and was one of the first comedies to explore sexual dynamics between men and women. The play continues to be performed in modern times.
