Who Does She Think She Is?


Have you heard of the documentary Who Does She Think She Is? If you are an artist who is also a mother, you MUST see this film. It follows five creative women who refuse to choose between mothering or working. We learn about the triumphs and the hardships of these women, meet their families and see them in their studios and homes. I've seen this film twice with groups of people (and I own a copy). Each time I watch it I am left feeling so incredibly inspired. These are women like me (my "tribe!") - creative, expressive women who are struggling to figure out how to stay true to their artistic selves and care for their children at the same time. It's a constant struggle and one that is not without guilt.

It's playing tonight (for free!) at Arcadia University in the Stiteler Auditorium from 7:30 - 10:30. Go see it! You won't be sorry.

Wow - this looks great! Wouldn't it be cool to arrange a viewing with a group? Thanks for sharing.
