S2.17 feat. Guerrilla Girls – Feminist Art-Activists, Creative Complainers, and Hashtag Heroes.  Anonymous, but hilarious, female artists tackle discrimination and equity issues in the art world.  Their super power – creative complaining – has moved the needle and may be a model of effective protest and activism for many of the troubling issues of our time.
