Hana Ponická (July 15, 1922 Halič, Czechoslovakia – August 21, 2007 Banská Bystrica, Slovakia) was a Slovak writer and former anti-Communist dissident. She opposed the Communist government of the former Czechoslovakia.
Ponická signed the Charter 77 human rights manifesto in 1977. Charter 77 was inspired by Václav Havel, a Czech dissident and playwright who later became president of the Czech Republic after the breakup of Czechoslovakia.
Hana Ponická, 85, died in Banská Bystrica, Slovakia on August 21, 2007, the 39th anniversary of the invasion of Czechoslovakia. A spokesman for the Christian Democratic Movement, Martin Krajcovic, did not give a cause of death. Ponická was buried in Halič, her native village located in southern Slovakia.
