Is Feminism Dead? Find Out with the Guerilla Girls @ CAPA Friday Night!

Do you consider feminism a dirty word?

If not, then you may know The Guerrilla Girls, authors of books like The Guerrilla Girls’ Bedside Companion to the History of Western Art and Bitches, Bimbos, and Ballbreakers: The Guerrilla Girls’ Illustrated Guide to Female Stereotypes.

Whether you know them or don’t, they’ll be at PITTSBURGH CAPA, THIS FRIDAY @ 7:00 PM!

Here’s what they’re about:

We’re a bunch of anonymous females who take the names of dead women artists as pseudonyms and appear in public wearing gorilla masks. We have produced posters, stickers, books, printed projects, and actions that expose sexism and racism in politics, the art world, film and the culture at large. We use humor to convey information, provoke discussion, and show that feminists can be funny. We wear gorilla masks to focus on the issues rather than our personalities. Dubbing ourselves the conscience of culture, we declare ourselves feminist counterparts to the mostly male tradition of anonymous do-gooders like Robin Hood, Batman, and the Lone Ranger.
