In celebration of the fifty-year anniversary of Womanhouse Anat Ebgi in partnership with LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division) has organized an afternoon of performance reimagining the students of Fresno State’s Feminist Art Program ‘Cunt Cheerleaders’ performance, a critical foundation to the inception of ‘Womanhouse’. The Fresno State students #KayLang, #VanalyneGreen @veeseegee , #DoriAtlantis @doriatlantis , and
#SueBoud were part of the Feminist Art Program led by #JudyChicago in 1971. Together they were introduced to feminist principles and organized the cheeky and pointed ‘Cunt Cheerleaders’ performance. Dressed in traditional cheerleader outfits with pom-poms, pleated skirts, and crop tops spelling out the word ‘Cunt,’ the cheerleaders relied on comedy and humor to exaggerate and critique gender norms. This seminal performance aimed to reclaim and fashion the derogatory term to celebrate women’s sexuality adding to the momentum of the 1970’s women’s liberation movement.
