Pussy Riot has a new female empowerment message and they’re spreading the word with their new single “Straight Outta Vagina,” featuring Desi Mo and Leikeli47. The Russian punk-rock protest group shared the new music video for the song on Tuesday as part of the Adult Swim Singles Program. 

Directed by Phillip Lopez, the clip starts with a young girl in a church who is given a piece of candy by singer Nadya Tolokonnikova, wearing the band’s signature ski mask. It then shows women in bathrooms, wearing price tags, cutting them off and then doing choreographed moves.

“Don’t play stupid/Don’t play dumb/Vagina’s where you’re really from,” sings Tolokonnikova as the women and young girl continue to dance while wearing blue masks. The song also features lyrics like “Vagina gonna win the race,” and “I wear my vag as a badge of honor.”

In a message from Pussy Riot, posted on the video’s description, the band wrote, “Women were slaves of the world for centuries. Women got their right to vote less than 100 years ago. Russia (1917), US (1919), Switzerland (1971). We’re still just about to build another roles, norms, ethics for vaginas owners.”

The punk rock group also took a stab at Donald Trump by adding, “And the owner of vaginas is not some narcissistic stupid orange ape who’d claim that he could easily grab women by their pussies. The owner of vagina is a woman. Who wears her vag as a badge of honor.”
