Aristophanes' anti-war comedy Lysistrata, written in 411 BC, has female characters barricading the public funds building and withholding consensual sex from their husbands to secure peace and end the Peloponnesian War.

In reaction to the Iraq disarmament crisis, this play was the focus of a peace protest initative called The Lysistrata Project in which public readings of the play were held on March 3, 2003.
