Pussy Riot

The anti-Putin pro-democracy movement currently associated with a wave of protests throughout Russia has witnessed the ascendance of the all-female punk group, Pussy Riot. In interviews, members of the band claim to be influenced by Third Wave feminism and the Riot Grrrl movement. Alongside attacks on Putin’s flawed election, Pussy Riot also seek to oppose the macho culture of mainstream Russian society.
