Spain: Candidate receives complaint for getting naked for the campaign (photos)
Mallorca, April 13, 2011
Candidate of Partit Democràtic de Ciutadella (PDC) Sole Sánchez Mohamed received a complaint for showing her breasts in an electoral poster.
The Esquerra de Menorca party (EM-EU, left-winged) filed a complaint at the Institut de la Dona (Institute of Women) for the “sexist use” Sanchez gives her body to favor her campaign.
The images made noise in Spain already. In one of them, the candidate appeared showing only her breasts, held by two male hands, reading: “Sole Sanchez. Two big arguments”.
But Sanchez does not stop there. She also appeared in a rather inappropriate (for the position she aspires to) photo shoot with little clothing and in masochist positions.
She defended herself against the accusations of the EM-EU by stating: “I’m a huge defender of the Institut de la Dona. No one is more feminist than I. 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”.
