Women got what they wanted - level 1

Women got what they wanted - level 1

30-10-2011 14:00

Women didn’t sleep with their husbands 3 months and 19 days. It was in the town of Barbacoas in Colombia.

The road to this town was very bad. Nobody wanted to repair it. Women wanted a change. They told their husbands to repair the road. If not, they won’t sleep with them. At the beginning men only smiled. They didn’t believe that women can do it. But after some days they understood. Women did it. Women started their protest on the 22nd of June this year.

On the 11th of October people started to build the road. This day was happy for everybody. Men wanted women very much. The night was very good.
