Guerrilla Girls

The Guerrilla Girls are a group of anonymous American female artists who seek to expose sexual and racial discrimination in the art world and the wider cultural arena

Formed in New York in the mid 1980s, Guerrilla Girls' members protect their identities by wearing gorilla masks in public and by assuming pseudonyms taken from deceased female figures.
