Isabelle Ameganvi, leader of the women’s wing of the group Let’s Save Togo revealed that women are being asked to withhold sex from their husbands or partners as of Monday.
She insisted that the strike would put pressure on Togo’s men to take action against the president. “We have many means to oblige men to understand what women want in Togo,” Ameganvi said.
The demonstration was organised to protest recent electoral reforms, which is said to make it easier for Gnassingbe’s party to win re-election in the parliamentary polls set for October.
“It’s a good thing for us women to observe this sex strike as long as our children are in jail now. I believe that by observing this, we will get them released,” a newspaper quoted a woman as saying. “For me, it’s like fasting, and unless you fast, you will not get what you want from God,” she added.
