Pereira's security chief hailed the strike as a success, saying the women had shown they could win with what he described as "very noble weapons".
There were some 488 murders reported in Pereira during 2005, with 90% of the dead gang members aged 14 to 25.
Launching the strike, the women vowed to withhold sex until their boyfriends stopped fighting.
"I would prefer him getting angry to having to go and cry at his funeral," one of the strikers said.
