Guerrilla Girls lead fight against inequality

Guerrilla Girls are taking over Utah State University, then moving on to Weber State University, to fight inequality.

The Guerrilla Girls are masked feminists who perform anonymously by wearing gorilla masks. Their shows combine humor, facts and visuals to shed light on issues such as inequality and stereotypes in art, pop culture, film and politics. The group started in New York City, and is now publishing books, working with human rights groups and more.

Two of the Guerrilla Girls will perform at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, in USU’s Performance Hall, 1200 E. 400 North, in Logan. The performance is focused on how and why artists succeed. The show is free.

A Guerilla Girls lecture is scheduled at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11, in the Kimball Visual Arts Center on the WSU campus, 3848 Harrison Blvd., Ogden. This event is also free.

For more information, call USU at 435-797-8022, or WSU at 801-626-6420.
