Women in Togo have been urged to abstain from sex for a week from Monday to push their demand for reform.

The ban has been called by opposition coalition Let's Save Togo, made up of nine civil society groups and seven opposition parties and movements.

Opposition leader Isabelle Ameganvi said that sex could be a "weapon of the battle" to achieve political change.

The coalition wants President Faure Gnassingbe, whose family has held power for decades, to stand down.

"We have many means to oblige men to understand what women want in Togo," Ms Ameganvi, leader of the women's wing of the coalition, told the BBC.

She said she had been inspired by a similar strike by Liberian women in 2003, who used a sex strike to campaign for peace.

"If men refuse to hear our cries we will hold another demonstration that will be more powerful than a sex strike," she added.

    Women say they can hold sex but yet they are the one who are the more after sex. Men are more obvious about it then women...But women get sexually frustrated much more and much faster than men.

    "Activists say that the strike will motivate men who are not involved in the political movement to pursue its goals, which include an end to the system allowing unlimited presidential terms."

    I can definitely support their cause.^ Although this sort of idea plays upon the backwards notion that only men are the ones who make sexual 'demands' upon unwilling women (which is a highly sexist concept). If people are getting arrested for protesting they have to try something else. I don't know if it will literally, work, but at least this action will call attention to injustice and political corruption in Togo. We're hearing about it aren't we?
