Russia's Feminist Punk Rockers!

Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer is available on HBO Go and select HBO viewings.

Their most famous protest was in February 2012, when several members stormed the altar of Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Savoir — a space where only the church patriarch is allowed — and briefly performed punk music.

Update: A publicist for Dasha Zhukova has sent a statement which you can find after the jump.

If you thought that Sarah Palin telling President Obama on her Facebook page to stop “playing the race card” was the most tone-deaf and ignorant thing to happen on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, you are actually wrong. That prize goes to the Russian blog Buro 24/7, which published a photo of socialite/billionaire’s girlfriend Dasha Zhukova sitting on a chair made to look like a Black woman. Keep reading »
