Video: God Bless the Wickedly Brave Women of Pussy Riot!

Stephen Colbert welcomed Masha Alyokhina, 25, and Nadya Tolokonnikova, 24, the recently freed members of the feminist punk band Pussy Riot, on The Colbert Report this week.

Colbert joked around by playing the role of a Putin defender: “Now Vladimir’s a friend,” he said. “So I’m going to edit out anything bad you say about him.”

To which our heroes replied, “That’s okay. We are making our own tape.”

And on it went. These women are so brave, witty, smart, and committed. They truly stand in the punk tradition. While touring the U.S. they are visiting our prisons. Nothing like going directly to the heart of the matter.

Thank you Pussy Riot! We are legion. (See my earlier post ‘Pussy Riot’ Sentencing: Can’t Jail Female Fury.)
