In order not to offend His Holiness
Women must give birth and love
During the Soviet period, women were pushed to produce strong children and support wartime husbands. Yet, even after the fall, the women’s movement in Russia did not take a firm hold. Women are still expected to be the traditional Russian grandmother (babushka) instead of individuals. Pussy Riot finds the continuation of sexism disturbing.
