Scope and Contents

This collection includes posters, financial and legal documents, correspondence, and ephemera that span the existence of the collective from its founding in 1985, to the incarnation and continued existence of the splinter group Guerrilla Girls BroadBand. Records shed light on the group's transition from an upstart activist group, to a trio of organizations, each with their own feminist focus.


Primarily, collection materials are arranged chronologically within each series. Undated materials are generally found at the end of each series or subseries. Realia, video, and audio media have been separated out into a separate subseries to facilitate usage. Each object and media element have then been assigned unique identification numbers.
