Togo: Women in Togo have gone on a week-long sex strike to protest against President Faure Gnassingbe, demanding his resignation.
Opposition coalition Lets Save Togo has called the strike, which began today. Nine civil society groups and seven opposition movements and parties are covered under the opposition coalition.
Isabelle Ameganvi, the leader of the opposition, has said that sex “could be a weapon of the battle to achieve political change,” BBC reported.
"We have many means to oblige men to understand what women want in Togo," Ms Ameganvi, leader of the womens wing of the coalition, told the BBC.
"If men refuse to hear our cries we will hold another demonstration that will be more powerful than a sex strike," she added.
