Imagine a woman so beautiful that she could stop a war with her beauty alone. Lysistrata was such a woman. In fifth century Greece she ended the Peloponnesian War between the Athenians and the Spartans by leading a 'sex strike' among the women of Athens. She believed that ultimately men would rather make love than war and that women could bring an end to war by simply denying men sex. Aristophanes wrote about Lysistrata in his comedy that bears her name. Unfortunately, such a concept has never been taken seriously. Phryne was another greek woman of legend who, when charged with prostitution, used the beauty of her naked body as her case in court, and won. What these women are trying to tell us is that female beauty is there to show us the right way to be. If we were to listen, maybe it would end all wars and all sexual crimes. Maybe that's something we should be taking seriously.
