How do you end a war that seems never ending? Aristophanes’ famous play, Lysistrata, takes on this question as it centers on the lives of the soldiers’ wives toward the end of the Peloponnesian War. One woman, Lysistrata, under the impression that a man’s libido is ultimately his driving force in life, comes up with an interesting peace solution: to deny their husbands and lovers sexual relations until they can settle on a peace agreement that will end the war. However, Lysistrata’s strategy effectively creates even more conflict than before as the sexes begin to feud with each other. Aristophanes’ play is both comic, poignant, and revealing as it examines gender relations that somehow still feel relevant thousands of years late
