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 
to radical activist and member of the Guerrilla Girls: feminist artists who never 
appear in public without wearing rubber gorilla masks and who go by the names 
of dead woman artists in order to uncover and reveal sexism in the performing 
art world. As the Guerrilla Girl Aphra Behn, Kaz created comedic performance art, 
street theatre and visual works that began both a dialogue and a pushback against discrimination in the theater world while proving feminists are funny at the same time. 
“Act Like A Feminist Artist” is an insiders look at what went behind the posters, 
protests, fax blitzes, speak outs and street theatre actions the Guerrilla Girls used 
to attack and expose sexism and racism in theatre. It 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.
