A strike of crossed legs
Wives and girlfriends of gang members in one of Colombia's most violent cities have gone on strike. They are calling a ban on sex in a bid to get their men to give up the gun and stop violence.
These women know that sex is a very powerful weapon, hopefully they can lure their gangster men to come to them on their terms.
The women have come up with a strike anthem rap song that included the lyrics: "As women we are worth a lot. We don't want to fall for violent men because with them we lose too much."
