Russian punk band 'Pussy Riot' could get seven years for anti-Putin protest

Submitted by Shayna Plaut, 10 May 2012

 

According to Feministing, three members of a Russian band, Pussy Riot, "were arrested, charged with hooliganism, which can carry a seven-year long prison sentence, and have been held in jail since March. The three women... say they are members of the band, but deny participating.... On Thursday, a judge turned down a request to release the women on bail until their trial starts."

Feministing is an award-winning website designed to give young women a voice in feminist issues.
