A woman is standing with her left foot slightly forward, a microphone in her left hand. She is wearing white sneakers, purple leggings, a green tank top, and a purple ski mask. The background is a rich purple color while the woman is framed by a lilac-colored box. The Russian word for revolt or rebel, восставать, is in a lilac-colored box which crosses in front of the woman’s chest. The word is a reference to the Russian group, Pussy Riot.
