The Polish Women’s Party was founded in 2007 and has around 1,500 members. It is a refreshing contrast to the stuffy conservative Law and Justice Party of the Kaczynski twins. The women's party is hoping to clear the 5% required in order to get a seat in the Polish parliament.

Mercifully, the Kaczynski twins have shown no sign of countering with a nude election poster of their own.
