No sex without legal reforms, women take to street to protest against this law

sex-strike

NEW YORK: In an act of protest against the current divorce laws, a group of Jewish women has begun a sex strike here. The protestors have decided not to engage in physical relations with anyone, including their husbands, until the current 'discriminatory and unjust' religious law, is rewritten.

In the beginning, there are about eight hundred people in the struggle. Malky Berkowitz, who has become the face of the 'no sex' protest, says that more people will arrive sooner or later. Malky is waiting for divorce from 2020. It has been dragging on due to legal issues. The protestors reckon that the matter can be achieved by putting pressure on husbands and the male community as a whole through the struggle.

The protesters say that many things in the current religious law, such as requiring the husband's written consent for divorce and also requiring women to seek rabbinical approval before reporting domestic violence to the police. Meanwhile, many people have come forward for and against the strike. The protestors say that they will not back down from the strike despite the insults hurled at them.
