Freed Pussy Riot members say prison was time of ‘endless humiliations’

Martha Rosler
“Alyokhina described her prison sentence as a time of “endless humiliations”, including forced gynaecological examinations almost every day for three weeks.

She said: “I decided to become a human rights activist when I realised how easy it was for officials to make a decision and force women to be examined in the most intimate parts of their bodies. Russian officials should not stay unpunished, they cannot have this kind of absolute power over us.”
