Famed Feminist Guerrilla Girls on Tour Coming to East Tennessee (UT-Knoxville)

The internationally famed and awesome Guerrilla Girls on Tour are headed to the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Feminists and other people in the area are in for a real treat. The group's motto is "Changing the world, one sexist city at a time," and they are serious! I only wish they were coming to Nashville, or that I was free to head out to Knoxville. If you are the area, you are damn lucky. Don't blow your chance to see them!

University of Tennessee: Women’s Coordinating Council is pleased to announce the Guerrilla Girls On Tour, an internationally acclaimed anonymous theatre collective, performed on campus March 23, 2010 at 7pm in the University Center Auditorium. Guerrilla Girls On Tour will bring to campus a live performance that addresses the lack of opportunities for women and people of color and explores the combination of performance and visual art entitled Feminists Are Funny. . .

The 26-member troupe has toured through 35 US states and 7 countries bringing their brand of satirical performance art and activism against discrimination, sexism and racism to places like southern Georgia, Eastern Europe and South America.
