The Lysistrata was a play by Aristophanes the Athenian, staged in 411 B.C.
The play is famous for a "sex strike" organized by the protagonist of the play, Lysistrata, in order to bring the Peloponnesian War to an end.
It did end, if in a crushing Athenian defeat, one which almost ended in fact in the depopulation of Athens, like Melos.
It ended in defeat primarily because of the Sicilian Expedition's failure, which in itself had a very curious prelude.
As the prelude, almost foreshadowing Lysistrata, "Herms," phallic symbols, were smashed all over Athens right before Alcibidiades undertook to lead the expedition to Sicily.
It's not a novel argument, but as one grows older, one wonders if indeed life foreshadowed art, as to feminist sabotage of an absolutely critical war effort in the Sicilian Expedition, even in ancient times, even if it was in fact irrational.
