Her work with Anarcho-punk band Crass was seminal to the 'protest art' of the 1980s. Vaucher has always seen her work as a tool for social change. In her collection of early works (1960-1997) Crass Art and Other Pre Post-Modernist Monsters, Gee is shown to use paints and collages to show her strong anarcho-pacifist, and feminist views through her artwork. Gee also uses the surrealist method to express her aforementioned ideals and styles.

In Gee's second book, Animal Rites, she gives a commentary on the relationship between animals and humans, centered on the quote "All humans are animal, but some animals are more human than others". Gee again uses collages and shows her intelligent wit, along with her disturbing yet, eye-opening style.


In the foreword to her 1999 retrospective collection Crass Art and Other Pre Post-Modernist Monsters, Ian Dury writes; Ian Dury (May 12, 1942 – March 27, 2000) was a rock and roll singer, songwriter, and bandleader. ...

"In its original form, Gee's work is intricate and tactile, and while the imagery is sometimes almost overwhelming, the primary concerns are those of a painter; dealing with form and space. Mere newsprint would hardly do justice to its subtle tones. When the work is printed, the space becomes more simple and the graphic images take on a different life. The concerns are those of delivery, and the message is clear."
