With Russia’s premiere (only) feminist punk band Pussy Riot currently touring North America, on a timely move, bandmember Maria (Masha) Alyokhina is also tackling selected speaking engagements—including one in Asheville, NC, home of BLURT’s western bureau According to the Asheville Citizen-Times:

Alyokhina’s tour will make a stop in UNC Asheville’s Humanities Lecture Hall at 7 p.m. Nov. 16 for a panel discussion that’s open to the public. Alyokhina will be joined by Alexandra (Sasha) Bogino, a reporter at the band’s independent media outlet Mediazona.

The discussion will be moderated by English professor Lori Horvitz, who also directs the Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies program, and UNCA student Emily Navarro.
