Polish party posts nude posters for upcoming election

A brand new Polish women's political party risks shocking the majority Catholic country by plastering nude posters of their female candidates for the upcoming October 21 parliamentary election.
Yahoo reports that 7 women, including the Women's Party founder and president, writer Manuela Gretkowska, have launched their campaign with nude posters of themselves, along with the logo "The Party of Women. Poland is a Woman" hiding their private parts.
Well, they already have my vote.
The poster also highlights their electoral motto: "Everything for the future... and nothing to hide."
"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," Gretkowska told AFP.
"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.
"All that interests us is the future, the position of women in society. We will open the archives of the former secret communist agents, we will make known their corrupt affairs," said Gretkowska.
Again, who could argue with that?
The pursuit of former communist secret police agents and business of corruption is not new at all. In fact, it has been at the heart of Polish politics since Lech and Jaroslaw Kaczynski came to power in 2005.
The Women's party was founded at the beginning of the year and has 1,500 members today. Many members are female celebrities, like actress Krystyna Janda or women's boxing champion Agnieszka Rylik. So they also have some star power behind them.
What led to the formation of this party? The founder credits the debate by the League of Polish Families regarding stiffening of the anti-abortion law as being "the straw that broke the camel's back,".
I find the whole thing very refreshing. American politics could learn a thing or two from them.
