The Guerrilla Girls are feminist activist artists who use facts, humor and outrageous visuals to expose gender and ethnic bias in politics, art, film, and pop culture. They wear gorilla masks in public to protect their anonymity; they could be anyone and they are everywhere.
The Guerrilla Girls are an anonymous group of activist artists. We use facts, humor and outrageous visuals to expose bias and corruption in politics, art, film, and pop culture. We 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.
We 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. We wear gorilla masks in public and take the names of dead artists as pseudonyms. We have always been diverse in age, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic class and ethnic background.
