Polish women strip off in bid to woo voters (Yes, there are pics!)
Telegraph.co ^ | 09/26/2007 | Harry de Quetteville

Posted on 09/28/2007 3:06:25 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd

Women from a new Polish political party have stripped off in a controversial poster campaign ahead of national elections.

Seven candidates from the Women's Party are featured posing behind a billboard that reads: "The party of women. Poland is a woman."

The attention-grabbing move is making waves in staunchly Catholic Poland, where the ruling Kaczynski twins have pushed a fiercely conservative agenda.

Writer Manuela Gretkowska said she founded the party as the Polish government considered tightening already strict controls on abortion.

"It is the straw that broke the camel's back," she said, adding that Poland's political scene was usually run by men for men.

"This poster is intended to shatter stereotypes in the anachronistic world of politics, which is more often dominated by uncommunicative men with their black tie outfits," she said.

"We are beautiful, nude, proud. We are true and sincere, body and soul. This is not pornography, there is nothing to see in terms of sex, our faces are intelligent, concerned, proud.

"We do not have our mouths open nor our eyes closed," she said.

So far, polls show the party will fail to cross the five per cent voting threshold required to enter parliament on the October 21 election.

But support is growing, and Ms Gretkowska hopes that the backing of some of Poland's most famous women could help push it over the line and into parliament.

If that happened, the Women's Party could become a key coalition partner after elections that none of the major parties looks like winning outright.

Its backing for equal pay for men and women as well as public funding for contraception would mark a major shift in Poland, where priests, not sexual-health practitioners usually set the political agenda.

But the mainstream parties, including the Law and Justice party of Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski, are waking up to the power that the women's vote could have in the October poll.

Mr Kaczynski has appointed the wife of an opposition politician to advise him on "women's affairs".

I sort of like it considering the oppression that was once all of Poland not long ago.

Freedom is a great thing.

Which might explain Poland getting f@#$ed all the time throughout the 20th Century.

Which might explain Poland getting f@#$ed all the time throughout the 20th Century. Ha ha. Very funny. Poland fought the Nazi's initial invasion, the Blitzkreig. Poland then fought as guerillas for the remainder of the war. In 1945 the entire nation fought the Nazi's in the Warsaw Uprising. If there is a more brave story of resistance against horrible odds I'm not sure what it is. Read Davis's excellent "Warsaw Rising 1945" for the whole story.

Few countries fought as long or hard against the Nazi's as Poland. Which makes FDR's gift to Stalin that much more painful. And, who was instrumental in bringing down the USSR? POLAND !!

Still sounds like a Leftist organization. "We want the right to kill our unborn babies!"

Something we need to remember folks, is that the socialist control freaks in Brussels (EU) desperately want to bring Poland down to its knees and in-line with the rest of the wussified European continent. Poland has defied the EU on several occasions and shows no sign of cracking. Remember when the EU masters imported a bunch of homosexual activists from Germany and elsewhere to hold a Gay Pride march in Poland. I have no doubt they are doing the same thing here. Poland stood against the EU on their "No Death Penalty Day" because the EU supports murderers but applauds the killing of the unborn.

Stand tough Poland. Don't let outsiders bring you down to the level of their enslaved societies.

Really? You don’t say.

I tend to stereotype politicians as stupid egotistical attention-whores; this stunt doesn’t shatter that stereotype, it REINFORCES it!

How on earth do you correlate that statement with this thread ? These are beautiful Polish girls protesting being held back back by stuffed-shirted hold-overs from the communist era. Poles are currently a breath of fresh air on the European continent. (All news out of Poland is so positive these days that I am becoming more Polophile every day!)
