SIATC *UPDATE* JULY 2013

Dear Teacups,

We have had an amazing year so far – so much feminist art activism happening in good ole London Town and all over the world. All of our Storm in a Teacup energies have been focused on the release of the “Lets Start a Pussy Riot”  which was released via Rough Trade records on the 24th of June. If you haven’t already got yourself a copy, you can buy it for £20.00 at any Rough Trade shop or online – all profits go directly to Pussy Riot. You can see some of our great coverage here;
