The former secretary of state posted the photo Friday after meeting with band members while the annual Women in the World Summit in New York.
Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina were imprisoned for nearly two years after being convicted of "hooliganism" and inciting religious hatred for performing a punk song slamming Putin in a Moscow cathedral and then posting a video of it online.
They were also briefly detained during the Sochi Winter Olympic Games earlier this year. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2014/04/07/hillary-clinton-poses-with-bleep-riot-members/
