>Village Women<

From Hurriyet: Women in Manavgat's Sirtkoy village which suffers from water shortage have started an interesting boycott against their husbands who failed to bring running water to the village. The women decided not to have sex with their husbands until the men bring a solution to the problem. ''Our husbands should first prove their manhood by bringing water to the village. Only then we'll open our beds to them. I'm fed up with bringing water from the fountain in the village square since my childhood,'' one woman said. The women in Sirtkoy are determined not to let their husbands sleep in the same bed with them until they have running water in their houses.

The inflation rate which was 16 percent in May dropped to three percent last month,'' the magazine wrote.
