On March 3, 2003 nearly 1,100 simultaneous productions of Lysistrata were performed in 59 countries around the globe. Written by Anonymous

Protests of present matters using present means
10 December 2008 | by (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

The importance of using our rights is exemplified in Operation Lysistrata, particularly when a fairly elderly women brings forth the belief that the young generation of America feels as though they missed times in our US history to protest. She explains that the youth must do their part, as past generations have. The new generation of protests is shown in Operation Lysistrata, through two women organizing a idea of demonstration. The way the film crew captures it is interesting and creative, not to mention inspiring way. Setting aside the importance of our natural rights, operation Lysitrata shows the young generation many ideas, including the use of present technology, to aid their action.
