Whatever life a woman leads, from biker chick to society girl, there''s a stereotype she''ll have to live down. The Guerrilla Girls, notorious for their outrageous take on women''s issues, now tackle the maze of stereotypes that follow women from cradle to grave. With subversive use of information-and great visuals-they explore the history and significance of stereotypes like Old Maid, Trophy Wife, and Prostitute with a Heart of Gold. They tag the Top Types, examine sexual slurs, explain the evolution of butches and femmes, and delve into the lives of real and fictional women who have become stereotypes, from Aunt Jemima to Tokyo Rose to June Cleaver. The Guerrilla Girls'' latest assault on injustice towards women will make people laugh, make them mad, and maybe even make them change their minds.
