Women got what they wanted - level 3

Women got what they wanted - level 3

30-10-2011 14:00

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

The road to this town was in a catastrophic state. Nobody wanted to repair it and women had enough. They told their men to repair the road otherwise they wouldn’t sleep with them. At first men were just laughing. They didn’t believe women could to that. But after some days they realized that women took it seriously. Women started their protest on the 22nd of June this year.

On the 11th of October the government started to build the road. That day was happy for everyone. After so many nights of waiting, men wanted to be with women so much and both enjoyed the night.

Interesting words: otherwise, at first, realize.
