Colombia sex strike 'Crossed Legs' protest appears to be working, say Barbacoas women


A group of Colombian women have gone on a ‘sex strike’ in protest of the crumbling road leading out of the area – and it appears to be working.

Women in the remote Colombian town of Barbacoas first formed the “crossed legs” movement two years ago. They refused to have sex with their husbands and partners to encourage the Government to deal with the terrible condition of a 35-mile stretch of road leading out of the area.

The road is often closed because of frequent flooding and mudslides and can take 24 hours to travel down. Reaching the nearest hospital can involve a journey of up to 14 hours.

The group of approximately 300, who held their first sex strike in 2011, say they withhold sex because many young women are at risk of dying in child birth on their way to the hospital.
