Before Barbie had KENough and infiltrated the patriarchy’s Mojo Dojo Casa House, there was Lysistrata. Aristophanes’ salty comedy set the stage for today's dynamic, prismatic, and problematic feminist icons. Join a faculty expert on political theatre to discuss the role of sex strikes within protest movements, and compare key scenes from the Greek comedy to recent adaptations like Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq.
