Female rock band gets jail time for speaking up and being feminists

Here is an excerpt from a Globe and Mail article: “Anyone interested in just how much Russia has changed since the days when it was the Soviet Union should examine what’s called the “Pussy Riot” case. Three female members of Russia’s punk-rock band, Pussy Riot, are facing jail on charges of “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred.” What the young band members — all in their twenties — did was attend Moscow’s Christ the Saviour Cathedral last February wearing their trademark coloured balaclavas and launched into an impromptu performance denouncing the election of Vladimir Putin and calling on the Virgin Mary “to throw Putin out.”
