The Guerrilla girls are a collective of political feminist artists who expose discrimination and corruption in art, film, politics, and pop culture all around the world.

street campaigns, unforgettable media appearances, and large-scale exhibitions.

In 1985, a group of masked feminist avengers—known as the Guerrilla Girls—papered downtown Manhattan with posters calling out the Museum of Modern Art for its lack of representation of female artists.

They quickly became a global phenomenon, and the fearless activists have produced hundreds of posters, stickers, and billboards ever since.
  • More than a monograph, this book is a call to arms.
  • This career-spanning volume is published to coincide with their 35th anniversary.
  • Perfect for artists, art lovers, feminists, fans of the Guerrilla Girls, students, and activists
  • Add it to the shelf with books like Wall and Piece by Banksy, Why We March: Signs of Protest and Hope by Artisan, and Graffiti Women: Street Art from Five Continents by Nicholas Ganz

The Guerrilla Girls are a group of political artists who have been exposing gender biases and discrimination in art and culture for more than 30 years.
