Sex Sells...In Politics Too.

The new Women’s Party in Poland wants equal pay, more pension rights and more government-funded child care. They also are demanding expanded rights of abortion, free contraception, an increase in the number of gynaecologists, and, get this, a "right to pain-free birth."

Is it any surprise to learn then that such a group is pitching its politics with nude women on posters and billboards? After all, sex sells cars, clothes and cameras...why not votes? And since it is sexual license that defines many of the Woman's Party's demands anyway, why not be "nakedly open" about it?
