Abstinence-Based Environmentalism

By Staff

<p>Kathryn Blume’s traveling one-woman show <a title=”The Boycott” href=”http://www.kathrynblume.com/BoycottVideo.htm” target=”_blank”>The Boycott</a> raises profound questions, such as, “What do men prefer, gas-guzzling motor vehicles or their wives’ carnal affections?” Blume’s monologue, based on the Aristophanes comedy <i>Lysistrata</i>, follows First Lady Lyssa Stratton as she singlehandedly tries to end global warming. Lyssa vows to abstain from sex until her husband solves climate change, and she urges other women to do the same. Check out Blume’s monologue here:</p>
