The Guerrilla Girls are a group of women artists and art professionals who make posters about sexism and racism in the art world and the culture at large. These self-styled feminist do-gooders see themselves as counterparts to Robin Hood, Batman, and the Lone Ranger, using humor to provoke discussion and wearing gorilla masks to focus on the issues, not their personalities. In ten years, they have produced seventy posters that have been passed around the globe by kindred spirits. Their slogan? “We could be anyone; we are everywhere.”
