Act Like a Feminist Artist: a Guerrilla Girl Unmasks. 
Ever wonder what it’s like to be a feminist masked avenger? Donna Kaz aka Aphra Behn, shares the story of her journey from survivor of domestic violence at the hands of a famous actor to radical activist and member of the Guerrilla Girls: feminists artists who never appear in public without wearing rubber gorilla masks and who go by the names of dead woman artists in order to shed light on sexism in the art world. As the Guerrilla Girl Aphra Behn, Kaz created comedic performance art, street theatre and visual works that addressed discrimination in the theater world and proved feminists are funny at the same time. “Act Like A Feminist Artist” discusses the posters, protests, fax blitzes, speak outs and street theatre actions of the Guerrilla Girls and includes readings from passages of Kaz’s new memoir, “UN/MASKED, Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl On Tour.” Get the inside scoop from a woman with two personas who takes off her mask and, by merging her identities, reveals all.
