Book info:

Pussy Riot undoubtedly ushered in a new era of feminism and political freedom with their protest acts. The dialogue so explosively ignited by Nadya, Masha and Katya continues in ‘Let’s Start A Pussy Riot’. The book asks how we can move forward and unite different voices and generations to create an inspiring dialogue. This book, published by Rough Trade Books, has been created in collaboration with Pussy Riot and links together the events leading up to and after the group’s arrest and the themes that these courageous women fight for – feminism, LGBTQ rights, freedom of speech and the environment.
