Pussy Riot’s Guide to Activism

By October 24, 2018New Releases, Political

Pussy Riot are a punk protest band and group of political activists striving for freedom from Putin’s dictator-style leadership. Their songs cover feminist themes of equality, equal rights, LGBT+ rights, and the fight against Russia’s patriarchal, religious political structure.

Pussy Riot became well known back in 2012 when they gave an impromptu performance of their punk prayer “Holy Shit” at a Moscow cathedral. Five of the band members broke into Christ the Saviour to perform “Holy Shit” -a condemnation of the Russian Orthodox church’s close ties to the Russian leader Vladimir Putin: “Holy Mother, Blessed Virgin- chase Putin out!” Three of them were arrested for ‘hooliganism’ and each jailed for 2 years.

For those of us who are ready to help take on toxic authoritarian governments, Nadya Tolokonnikova, founding member of Pussy Riot and feminist icon, has written her book ‘Read and Riot: A Pussy Riot Guide to Activism’. 

Every good patriarchy-smashing feminist needs it on their shelf!
