Lysistrata is one of the most famous comedies from the Classical Greek era. It was written by the Athenian playwright Aristophanes in 411 BC in protest of the Peloponnesian War. In it, the women of the Greek city-states band together to do what the men can't and end this terrible war. Due to this premise, this work is seen not only as an anti-war piece, but also as an analysis on gender roles and relations.
