The Guerrilla Girls are an anonymous group of activist artists. They use facts, humor and outrageous visuals to expose bias and corruption in politics, art, film, and pop culture. They have done hundreds of projects (posters, actions, books, videos, stickers) all over the world, as well as interventions and exhibitions inside museums, blasting them on their own walls for their discriminatory practices.
The Guerrilla Girls are intersectional feminists who fight for human rights for all people and all genders, and against ethnic and gender stereotypes, homophobia, trans- phobia, war, and income inequality. Over 55 individuals have been members of the Guerrilla Girls, some for weeks, some for decades. They wear gorilla masks in public and take the names of dead artists as pseudonyms. The Guerrilla Girls have always been diverse in age, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic class and ethnic background.
