The year was 411 B.C. and a civil war had been raging in Greece for over twenty years. For Aristophanes that was long enough to start writing comedies about the war. The story of Lysistrata is simple. Lysistrata is an Athenian woman who figures out a way to end the war with Sparta. She conspires with the women in both city/states and they all agree to withhold sex from their husbands until the men agree to sign a peace treaty. Then, to up the ante even further, the women seize control of the Acropolis, where the Athenian treasury is housed, thus cutting off funding for the war. A bold statement on war given in a timeless comedy.
