Bankrupt Slut, Sticker, Sunset and Hyperion, taken September 10, 2013
Well, does it?
I remember hearing about Pussy Riot when a few of the women were arrested in February 2012. They were performing in a church, people were offended and they were arrested. That is the condensed version that most people are probably aware of.
However, after watching the documentary Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer, I learned the group is so much more. The women use music and the locations of their performances to further a social agenda that is important to young people in Russia. The government there is becoming more repressive, and Pussy Riot wants people to take a stand. The women who were arrested, took their punishment in stride. They even said they hope people in other cities form their own Pussy Riot groups and start performing. In fact, the members of Pussy Riot rotate as they are available to practice and perform. It is more than just a band, it is a movement.
