Guerrilla Girls

An all-female activist collective organized in 1984. The Guerrilla Girls self-describe as “a group of women artists and art professionals who fight discrimination . . .  [and] expose sexism and racism in the art world and culture at large.” The members of the group maintain their anonymity by wearing gorilla masks and naming themselves after famous dead women.
