As a russian I don't find Marat's attitude to women so much dinosaurish. He's no worse than most of the guys here.
And as a woman ...?
As for Pussy Riot, he seems to be just as brainwashed by official propaganda and by his "colleagues" as the majority of russians. I even think he would actually liked these girls if he knew them personally. The big problem is that people (not only in Russia I guess) tend to make offhanded and harsh judgments without checking the facts. Ironically, Marat himself used to be an object of such judgements.
I think I gave him too much credit as an independent thinker. And yeah, it struck me as well that, more likely as not, he'd get on with them if he knew them.
