Poland doesn`t need feminism or women liberation movement. Why? As a matter of fact, Polish women could be independent whenever they wanted. Polish males have always accepted that and even revered their female partners - probably as a result of the cult of Mary, God`s Mother, in Poland. Besides, when men went to combat during wars or risings and got killed or deported to Siberia, it was Polish women who took care of everything, children, household, etc.
This thread is about great Polish women who made it to the top.Hanna Beata Gronkiewicz-Waltz (Polish pronunciation: [ˈxanna ɡrɔnˈkʲevʲit͡ʂ ˈvalt͡s], born 4 November 1952 in Warsaw) is a Polish liberal-conservative politician who has been the Mayor of Warsaw since 2 December 2006. She is the first woman to hold this position.
Between 1992 and 2000, she was the Chairman of the National Bank of Poland, the central bank of Poland. She resigned to take the position of the Deputy Chairman of European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, a position she held between 2001 and 2004.
Gronkiewicz-Waltz was elected to the Sejm on 25 September 2005 after receiving 137,280 votes in the 19th Warsaw district, running on the Civic Platform list.
