SETTING THE BASELINE: Read the play Lysistrata


LYSISTRATA by Aristophanes

EVERY woman in the world needs to read LYSISTRATA. Many American women have never heard of this play, much less read it. Lysistrata is considered to be the first comedy ever written. It's so ironic that mothers and wives holding a sex strike for peace should be considered a comedy. While Lysistrata is famous as a Greek play about women having a sex-strike to end a war, few ever recall that the first aspect of the play is that the women take over the Acropolis which is where the Treasury is and lock the men out, telling them they have to find another way to finance and pay for THEIR war! So, we are talking about women of infinite wisdom (though Aristophanes was a man).

Please send us your book nomination at mail@xociety.org with "One Book Nomination" in the subject field. There's no limit to the number of books you may suggest. Deadline: December 1st. Book sellected will be announced on January 2004.
