This workmanship was written to make a critical a War of the Peloponeso, and is during that if it passes action of the workmanship. The women, of the cities involved Greeks in the War of the Peloponeso, led for the Lisstrata athenian, decide to institute a sex strike and the invasion of the Acrpole, where the Athenian treasure is kept, to force its husbands to stop the fight and to establish the peace.
