"With humor, irony and the power of anonymity, the ape-masked Guerilla Girls and their posters have spoken out against sexism and racism in the New York art world since the mid-1980s. One of their tactics, which has been successful in the sense that it has caused real change, has been to publicize the names of fine art galleries and museums that do not, or do not frequently, exhibit works by women or people of color" (American Style p. 122).
