South Side woman launches 'sex strike' to end violence

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - No justice, no sex. A South Side woman thinks sex is the solution to Chicago's violence problem. She is reportedly launching an online petition for a "sex strike."

April Lawson hopes women will sign up for her cause on Change.org and agree to abstinence until the men of their communities put down their guns. 

The idea of a "sex strike" is the premise behind Spike Lee's soon-to-be released movie "Chiraq."

Lawson said she was inspired to start the petition because she is tired of the violence in the city and thinks "you have to hit people where it hurts."
