Pussy Riot's Nadya Tolokonnikova on Why She's Joining the Abortion Fight and ‘Insane' Putin's War on Ukraine
Michael Tullberg/Getty Images for ABA"I can't tell you where I am for safety reasons," says Nadya Tolokonnikova. "But I'm somewhere on the planet."

The outspoken activist and Pussy Riot member—who was imprisoned in a Russian penal colony for "hooliganism" after performing the collective's anti-Putin anthem "Punk Prayer" at Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in 2012—was designated a "foreign agent" by Russia's Ministry of Justice late last year, which hasn't exactly eased her anxiety. But it didn't stop the 32-year-old from fighting the good fight. Her latest initiative is LegalAbortion.eth, an Ethereum wallet where people can donate crypto that will then be fully distributed to seven reproductive rights organizations in the wake of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade's reversal: Planned Parenthood, URGE, NARAL, Center for Reproductive Rights, Fund Texas Choice, SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective, and Fos Feminista.

Legalabortion.eth is spearheaded by Unicorn DAO, a decentralized autonomous organization that markets NFTs from female, non-binary, and LGBTQ artists as a means of diversifying web3 and redistributing its wealth. Unicorn DAO was founded by Nadya following her successful Ukraine DAO, which raised nearly $7 million for Ukraine.
