The Guerrilla Girls are anonymous artist activists who use disruptive headlines, outrageous visuals and killer statistics to expose gender and ethnic bias and corruption in art, film, politics and pop culture. We believe in an intersectional feminism that fights for human rights for all people. We undermine the idea of a mainstream narrative by revealing the understory, the subtext, the overlooked, and the downright unfair. We have done hundreds of projects (street posters, banners, actions, books, and videos) all over the world. We also do interventions and exhibitions at art museums, blasting them on their own walls for their bad behavior and discriminatory practices, including a stealth projection on the façade of the Whitney Museum about income inequality and the super rich hijacking art. Our retrospectives and traveling exhibitions have attracted thousands. Our new book, Guerrilla Girls: The Art of Behaving Badly collects hundreds of our projects from 1985 to 2020, and was named one of the best art books of 2020 by The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times. Recently our work was at Tate Modern and Whitechapel Gallery, London; São Paulo Museum of Art; the Venice Biennale; Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam; Museum of Military History, Dresden; Art Basel Hong Kong; and many other places. Our motto: Do one thing. If it works, do another. If it doesn’t, do another anyway. Keep chipping away!

Abstract

The poster "Guerrilla Girls Demand A Return To Traditional Values On Abortion" was created by the Guerrilla Girls in 1992. Through this work, and as noted on their website, the Guerrilla Girls ask: What are traditional values on abortion? According to the Guerrilla Girls and their poster, it depends.
