Stop by Blue Stockings for the New York City launch event for "Let's Start A Pussy Riot" (Rough Trade Books). Chaired by the book's editor Jade French, there will be discussions with book contributors Anne Sherwood Pundyk, Kembra Pfahler, Lynn Casper (Homoground) as well as a performance by Jeffrey Lewis. Copies of the book will be available and all profits go to support Pussy Riot.

The event will also feature a Skype Q+A with the book's curator Emely Neu and short screenings of video messages of support from other contributors.

"Let's Start A Pussy Riot" was created in collaboration with members of 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 environmental activism. Contributors include Judy Chicago, Jón Gnarr, Antony Hegarty, Bianca Casady, Sarah Lucas, Bobby Conn, Robyn, Kim Gordon, Lucky Dragons, Billy Childish, and many more.

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'. Also heavily influenced by last years Antony Hegarty-curated Meltdown festival, the book includes an exploration of the concept of Future Feminism, asking how we can move forward, and create an inspiring dialogue in an effort to unite different voices and generations.
