  5. In 1985, a group of women artists founded the Guerrilla Girls. They assumed the names of dead women artists and wore gorilla masks in public, concealing their identities and focusing on the issues rather than their 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.

    At the turn of the millennium, three separate and independent incorporated groups formed to bring fake fur and feminism to new frontiers: Guerrilla Girls, Inc., guerrillagirls.com, was established by two founding Guerrilla Girls and other members to continue the use of provocative text, visuals and humor in the service of feminism and social change. They have written several books and create projects about the art world, film, politics and pop culture. They travel the world, talking about the issues and their experiences as feminist masked avengers, reinventing the “f” word into the 21st century.

    Guerrilla Girls On Tour, Inc., guerrillagirlsontour.com, is a touring theatre collective founded by three former members of the Guerrilla Girls. GGOT develops original plays, performances and workshops, street theatre actions and residency programs that dramatize women’s history and address the lack of opportunities for women and artists of color in the performing arts. In addition to a lecture and major retrospective exhibition in the spring of 2012, The Guerrilla Girls will have two workshop engagements with A + D students, directing and generating a body of work that will be part of a student arts activist exhibition that will also open in the spring of 2012.

    the Study of Women and Gender in the Arts and Media, The Interdisciplinary Arts
    Department, and the Center for Book and Paper Arts.

    It was supposed to be the year we finally shattered the glass ceiling. But a sharply split female electorate helped ensure that misogyny and sexism would live to see another day. In this 4x60’ docuseries, we watch as eight American women of opposing political, economic and cultural backgrounds explore the reasons behind their deepest and most visceral divisions, and what can be done to repair the rift. vimeo.com/203382661
