Sole Sanchez, Spanish politician from the newly formed Partit Democratic de Ciutadella (PDC) who is standing for a council seat in the town of Ciutadella on the west of the Balearic Island, has caused quite a stir over an image showing her naked breasts being squeezed by a pair of hands.
In another campaign, she posed in her underwear, tied up, and on her knees in sadomasochistic style.
Candidates in her opposition are objecting to the posters as being “sexist” and “demeaning to women.” They have even complained to the Institut de la Dona (Institute of Women) which demanded they be withdrawn.
Ms Sanchez, who is standing for a council seat in the town of Ciutadella on the west of the Balearic Island, defended the images claiming she was a huge supporter of women’s rights.
”No one is more feminist than me,” she told local media. “Each person is free to express themselves as they please, and I use my breasts and my body as I want.
”If the only thing they can do is watch, that is their problem,” she added.Source: www.telegraph.co.uk
This is not the first time as similar posters were used in Germany’s 2009 general election when the conservative CDU party used images of Chancellor Angela Merkel and fellow candidate Vera Lengsfeld showing plenty of cleavage in low cut dresses with the slogan “We have more to offer”.
The council seat selection for the town of Ciutadella are to be held on May 22. Let us see if they work or not.
