Title: Guerrilla Girls BroadBand

Description: Guerrilla Girls is an activist group of women artists advocating for gender equality in the art world. The group was formed in 1985 in response to an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art that included 165 artists but only 17 women. Dubbing themselves "The Conscience of the Artworld," they started making posters that bluntly stated the facts of discrimination and used humor to convey information, provoke discussion and to show that feminists can be funny. They assumed the names of dead women artists, and began wearing gorilla masks when we appeared in public, concealing their true identities and focusing on the issues rather than on our personalities. Between 1985 and 2000, close to 100 women, working collectively and anonymously, produced posters, billboards, public actions, books and other projects to make feminism funny and fashionable. Guerrilla Girls Broad Band is one of three groups that splintered from the original Guerrilla Girls around 2000.
