The world has gone bananas – 9 Steps to make a difference.

In 1997 I became a member of the Guerrilla Girls; activist/feminists whose mission was to shed light on discrimination in the arts. As a theatre artist I spearheaded the Guerrilla Girl campaign to address sexism in the theatre world and in 2001 formed Guerrilla Girls On Tour, a touring theatre company which created visual works, performances and street theatre actions that focused on promoting gender parity in the arts and other issues effecting women and artists of color. On November 1, 2016, I published a memoir about my life as the Guerrilla Girl Aphra Behn entitled, UN/MASKED, Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl On Tour. As I toured the country reading from the book someone always asked me this: What can I do? How can I effect change? Even though I had shared some of the tactics of the Guerrilla Girls in my memoir I quickly came to the conclusion that another, more detailed guide, was needed to help people deal with the craziness of the twenty-first century. People are angry, scared, sad and feel helpless. The problems of the world appear to be untenable. There is so much that needs changing, how can one person tackle it all?

The world has gone bananas – 9 Steps to make a difference is a forty-five minute motivational speech detailing how one person can push against the status quo. Inspired by my twenty years on the front line of feminist activism it is a humorous and enlightening journey toward becoming an effective artist and activist.
