Women find nothing gets things done like a 'crossed-leg' protest.

Yes, Rose, it struck me that this would eliminate cost overruns on these kinds of projects for the most part.

Women are in the majority. I have been wondering since this "war on women" was begun by the conservatives, why women in the US weren't doing something just like this. As soon as women decide to withhold sex from their husbands and partners, this "war on women" will be a thing of the past PDQ and hopefully, so will conservative fundamentalism. Women must unite and take a stand and "crossing our legs" may just be the stand to take.

This is a gem of an article I found it very amusing and unique it certainly makes a change from treading about industrial strikes.There is however a serious side to this protest and it seems to work.Good on these women.

Not example I would have used, but, it applies. Women are the powers of the world, only held back by men who cannot concede control.

Hey, whatever works! I'm so glad they got the road they needed. With no other access, it's apparent it was an emergency. Thanks for the article, Cal.

Would that some legislators' wives take note and use this age-old tactic to get some action out of their spouses. >sigh< oh, yeah - they're commanded to submit.

Yes! I think Republican woman can control the GOP(Great Oppressive Penis) by withholding sex while there is a war on women.
