Have you heard of them? They're a Russian feminist, political activist band/art installation/flash mob.


I've posted the above in that manner to avoid giving offense. (No, no, really i did.) They were arrested and will be prosecuted for that one. No, i don't speak Russian, and have no clue what they're saying. I find them interesting because of the public reaction. This author writing in Forbes Magazine says that as they become more well known in Russia, public sentiment becomes stronger for them to receive harsh prison sentences.

This article in the Independent explains the incident and its consequences for band members.

This article from Radio Free Europe alleges harrassment while the women are held in prison.

They are now, finally, getting some attention in the West. Whaddaya think, goys and birls?
