Feminist punk group Pussy Riot members, from left, Yekaterina Samutsevich, Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova sit in a glass cage at a court room in Moscow, Russia on Friday, Aug 17, 2012. The women, two of whom have young children, were convicted of “hooliganism” Friday for their anti-Putin performance in a Moscow cathedral. Judge Marina Syrova sentenced them to two years in jail, a year less than the prosecution asked for.
