instant thorts: Age of Concern.
Age of Consent or Age of Concern?
Back on 22 August (2012), I wrote a post about the age of consent. I explained that my almost sixteen-year-old had told she’d read across Google that the age of consent was being dropped to 14. I quickly ‘Googled it’ and found all sorts of info. Some good, some not so good. It didn’t take me long to find a reliable source: On February 16th of 2007 the Telegraph ran this headline:
Throughout this article the word ‘pussy’ will be used frequently. (This is not for effect it is solely because the focus of this article is the group Pussy Riot.) If this offends please leave now.
Pussy Riot have become the face of modern feminism in Russia today.
.: Feminist collective &
Punk-Rock band Pussy Riot :.
But who are Pussy Riot?
No one knows. They are a collective of middle-class young women. They are ‘kind’ revolutionaries. They are a phenomena. They are few, but they are many.
In a country that feminism seemed to miss, the not so quiet women’s revolution rages on. Western women can say or sing whatever they please without having to hide behind nicknames and masks, but in Russia feminism has to shield her face from the government.
