We’re still working on Banned Book Week here on my blog, and today’s selection is Lysistrata. This book was required reading in Philosophy class. This Greek comedy was a decent read, but I can understand why it was banned from the US until the 1930s. Let’s face it, a male dominated society does not want women getting any ideas about withholding sex from their husbands in an attempt to control them. As if we somehow didn’t already know that secret! *grin* Speaking of secrets. Don’t forget that I’ve got a surprise coming for blog readers on Friday.
This Greek tragedy, written around 400 B.C., was banned from being brought into the U.S. until 1930.
