Female Czech lawmakers posed provocatively in a 2011 political calendar after women won more seats in the Czech parliament than ever this year, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

The Public Affairs party published the calendar, which highlighted its female lawmakers in sexy outfits and poses.

The Wall Street Journal said the campaign reflected a new Czech generation which is embracing feminity and equal rights for women.

"Women's political influence is growing," said Marketa Reedova, a 42-year-old councilwoman featured in the calendar. "Why not show we are women who aren't afraid of being sexy?"
