Guerrilla Girls On Tour is an anonymous theatre collective whose mission is to create new plays that dramatize women’s history and address the current state of women in the performing arts and beyond. Our performances use comedic, physical, and vaudevillian-like techniques to prove that feminists are funny. In order to put the focus of our work entirely on the issues we address each member performs under the name of a dead woman artist and wears a gorilla mask to conceal her true identity.

No woman is nominated for a 2009 TONY in the following 10 categories:
Best Book of a Musical
Best Revival of a Play (no plays by women nominated)
Best Revival of a Musical (no musicals by women nominated)
Best Scene Design in either play or musical categories
Best Lighting Design in either play or musical categories

The good news is that two women are nominated for best direction of a musical - Kristin Hanggi for "Rock of Ages" and Diane Paulus for "Hair" and that press agent Shirley Herz is being honored for Excellence in Theatre and Phyllis Newman is the Isabelle Stevenson Award honoree.
