    The Guerrilla Girls are feminist masked avengers in the tradition of anonymous do gooders like Robin Hood, Wonder Woman and Batman We use facts, humor and outrageous visuals to expose sexism, racism and corruption in politics, art, film and pop culture We undermine the idea of a mainstream narrative in visual culture by revealing the understory, the subtext, the forgotten, the overlooked, the understated and the downright unfair Our work has been passed around the world by our tireless supporters, who use us as a model for doing their own crazy kind of activism.In the last few years, the Guerrilla Girls have appeared at over 100 universities and museums around the world We created a large scale installation for the Venice Biennale, brainstormed with Greenpeace, and participated in Amnesty International s Stop Violence Against Women Campaign in the UK In 2006, we unveiled our latest anti film industry billboard in Hollywood just in time for the Oscars, appeared at the Tate Modern, London, and created large scale projects for Istanbul and Mexico City In 2007 we dissed the Museum of Modern Art at its own Feminist Futures Symposium, examined the museums of Washington DC in a full page in the Washington Post, and exhibited large scale posters and banners in Athens, Rotterdam, Bilbao, Sarajevo, Belgrade and Shanghai In 2008 9, we did actions at the Broad Contemporary Art Museum at LACMA, Los Angeles, Bronx Museum, New York, Ireland and Montreal.The Guerrilla Girls work has appeared in The New York Times, The London Times, The New Yorker, and Bitch on NPR, the BBC and the CBC and in many art and feminist texts We are the authors of stickers, billboards, posters and other projects, and several books including The Guerrilla Girls Bedside Companion to the History of Western Art, Bitches, Bimbos and Ballbreakers The Guerrilla Girls Illustrated Guide to Female Stereotypes and The Guerrilla Girls Art Museum Activity Book Our latest book, The Guerrilla Girls Hysterical Herstory of Hysteria and How it Was Cured, from Ancient times Until Now, will be published in 2010 From guerrillagirls press o

    • The book looks really dated, but the Guerrilla Girls' message is still as timely as ever. I miss seeing coverage of their work in major media outlets.

    • Another fantastic thrift store find. I never knew about the Guerrilla Girls until I saw this book, and they are absolutely fantastic. I can see a direct influence of these women on the Pussy Riot punk band in Russia. A must-read.

    • I sat down and devoured this book cover to cover. It is really informative and the poster section at the back is a great example of snarky and creative feminist activism.

    • Guerrilla Girls; ALWAYS a great read. Very insightful, very informative, very witty, and ultimately, very, very entertaining!
