Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Taking readers back through the ages, the Guerrilla Girls demonstrate how males have dominated the art scene, and discouraged, belittled, or obscured the women's movement. This colorful reinterpretation of classic and modern art, as outrageous as it is visibly arresting, is a much-needed corrective to traditional art history, and an unabashed celebration of female artists. Illustrations. 96 pp. 8-city author tour. Online publicity. National radio interviews. 35,000 print.

About the Author

The Guerrilla Girls are a collective of female artists and art-world professionals. Their largest contingent is in New York City, but they have been sighted all over the United States, Europe, and wherever truth, justice, and the American way of discrimination still prevail.
