Team Pussy Riot

Pussy Riot’s “Punk Prayer – Mother of God, Chase Putin Away!” - This Moscow-based Russian feminist punk rock protest group is totally badass. They have variable membership (how cool – an evolving band!) with women in their 20s and 30s. The video here is particularly controversial, which shows several of the women singing in Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Savior. Following this performance, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina were jailed, followed by another member – Yekaterina Samutsevich – two weeks after. Despite their obstacles, these ladies are strong and empowered and continue to stand by their actions.
