Pussy Riot

 

Pussy Riot are a punk rock group from Russia, consisting of several women that aim to spread feminism through their music and performative acts. ‘the strategy of pussy riot is to show up at certain places and shock the public there is a socio political message behind it all’ (A member of Pussy Riot’s father stated in the documentary). 

Some of the groups acts and songs have been seen as offensive and/or radical in Russia but they continue to perform as they feel strongly that their message is to be heard. They believe that it is ‘important for Russia’s development’ that feminist views are heard and accepted in society.

The group wear brightly coloured masks instead of black balaclavas to try to show that they are not acting as criminals but as artists and their message is a positive one not a negative one.
